Aquamarine, the Birthstone of March

If you were born in March, your birthstone is Aquamarine. It comes as no surprise that the name means seawater in Latin, because this gorgeous stone evokes the colors of the sea, from deep green-blue to light blue hues.

In many occasions as clear as water, it symbolizes purity of spirit and soul, and ancient seafarers claimed the gem would calm waves and keep them safe at sea.

Aquamarine, just like emerald, is a color variety of the mineral beryl and can be found in many states of Asia, Africa and South America. It is moderately priced and also the stone of the 19th wedding anniversary.
