Aquamarine is the birthstone that represents the month March, as well as the nineteenth wedding anniversary.

Aquamarine’s cool blue hues are reflected in its name, which comes from the Latin for “sea water.” Medieval sages prescribed water touched by aqua-marine for a host of ills, including those affecting the eyes and lung. They promised the virtues of insight and foresight to the gem’s wearers.

Why are we in love with Aquamarine?

  1. Beautiful Crystals: Aquamarine grows in beautiful six-sided prismatic crystals that on rare occasions can be more than a foot long.
  2. Transparency: Faceted aquamarine is often exceptionally transparent with vitreous luster, so it really does sparkle.
  3. Dichroic: Using a dichroscope, you can see aquamarine is near colourless and stronger blue in different crystal directions.

Healing Properties:

Aquamarine is a stone of courage. Its calming energies can help to reduce stress and calm the mind. It has an affinity with sensitive people. It can invoke tolerance of others and overcome judgmentalism, giving support to those overwhelmed by responsibility.
