AQUAMARINE: MARCH

The word aquamarine is derived from the word aqua meaning “water” and maris meaning “sea”. This gem comes in several shades of blue ranging from blue-green to a light sky blue. Aquamarine is a 7.5 to 8 on the Moh’s Hardness Scale. It is a member of the beryl family and is readily available in many different shapes and sizes.

It is said to protect against sea sickness, protect against dangers at sea and is thought to originate from a mermaids jewelry box. Aquamarine is also believed to bring wisdom, success, true love, peace, and popularity to those who wear it. It is believed to reawaken tired marriages and symbolizes safety and security. Aquamarine has long been believed to be a curer of problems with the vocal cords, speech and problems with the thyroid gland.

Aquamarine is found mainly in Brazil, but is also located in China, India, USA, Australia, and Africa. It was adopted as the Colorado state gemstone in 1971 and is the accepted anniversary gemstone for the 19th year of marriage.

We’re not seeing a return of the 1990s big, loud “bling-y” way; this style is more of a classic and romantic look from the 1930s Art Deco style – lots of linear lines and shapes that give a bigger look without taking a bite out of your wallet.
