    Imagine yourself floating peacefully on the water protected and loved. Soothing blue green Aquamarine can evoke these feelings since it is linked with the sea through folklore as a protective stone or talisman for fishermen, sailors, and travelers in general. It is the birthstone for March, is a stone of courage, with calming energies to calm and quiet the mind, prevent drowning (sailors’ folklore), enhance clarity and is associated with the throat chakra. 

    The word Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marina for “sea water” pertaining to its color similar to the sea. Historically, Aquamarine has been admired by the Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans, Hebrews, and early Christians  and used in jewelry, amulets, talisman, carvings as the sacred jewel of Neptune, sailor’s gem (early Romans), safe travel (Apostle Saint Thomas), and protection from poisoning (Middle Ages). 

    Aquamarine is a variety of beryl in opaque to transparent colors of blue to blue-green, greenish-blue. Its blue coloring comes from trace amounts of ferrous iron content and can display a silky glow or sheen (chatoyancy). With a MOHS hardness of 7.5 to 8 it is perfect for a variety of uses in jewelry, decoration or artwork.

    Did you know Aquamarine is rather common and is found in Afghanistan, Australia, Brazil, China, India, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Siri Lanka, Vietnam, United States (California, Connecticut, Maine, North Carolina), and Zimbabwe?
