Aquamarine's greenish-blue color is a popular choice for spring and summer wardrobes, and the March birthstone is the perfect gemstone for the transition from winter to spring. The name aquamarine comes from the Latin phrase “aqua marinus” which means water of the sea. It’s easy to see where the gemstone gets its name as it 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.
