Aquamarine - The Gemstone of Mermaids
5 Mar 2012
Aquamarine is the birthstone for March and along with Emerald, is part of the Beryl family of Gemstones. The name comes from the Latin aqua (water) and mare (sea). According to old tradition the stone is said to promise the wearer a happy marriage along with joy and wealth.
Aquamarine is a natural stone found in many different shades of blue from the bright blue sky to the deep blue ocean. It was said to have originated in the treasure chests of mermaids and is therefore the lucky stone of sailors. It is a strong Gemstone and the deeper the colour the higher the value.
