Beautiful Aquamarine Birthstones for March

 

Colours

Aquamarine is most often light in tone and ranges from greenish blue to blue-green; the color is usually more intense in larger stones. 

 

Meanings

The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea.  Aquamarine was believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage. The beautiful blue color of aquamarine is said to give its wearer protection against foes in battle or litigation. It also brings the wearer unconquerable and amiable powers. It quickens the intellect and dulls a temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. March’s birthstone is also thought to enhance the happiness of marriages.

As well as being the birthstone for March Aquamarine is also the gem of the 19th wedding anniversary.
