March is here, and it brings with it the beginning of spring. This month's birthstone is aquamarine and is the perfect gemstone for the transition from winter to summer. Its dazzling blue color makes it an excellent choice to accent spring and summer wardrobes.
The name aquamarine comes from the Latin phrase “aqua marinus” which means water of the sea. When you examine the gemstone it’s easy to see where it gets its name as it closely resembles a beautiful blue sky or blue-green ocean water.
Aquamarine ranges in color from almost transparent to a deep and rich blue. Darker shades of blue are the rarest, making them the most valuable. Larger stones also tend to have more intense coloring than smaller stones.
Aquamarine is a type of beryl and measures 7.5 - 8 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Anything over a 7 is ideal for everyday wear pieces, which makes aquamarine a great choice for all settings.
The symbolic meaning of aquamarine is peacefulness, truth and trust, beauty, happiness, youth, health, and hope.
It is known as the calming stone and is thought to bring happiness in marriage. Ancient mariners also believed the stone would calm the waves and keep sailors safe on their journeys
