March Birthday Bling: Aquamarine
With spring fast approaching, bright and cheerful colors are making their way back in style, making March’s birthstone, aquamarine, the perfect gemstone to kick off the new season! Like any birthstone, aquamarine is a popular gem that holds a rich history and powerful meaning.
With its stunning shade of cool blue, the name aquamarine is derived from the 1700’s phrase “water of the sea.” It was often called the Sailor’s Stone, as it was believed to keep sailors safe from rough seas and impossible storms. It was also thought to bring victory in battle and protect royalty from poison. Without a doubt, aquamarine has a positive history of keeping its wearer safe through difficult times.
Meaning Behind Aquamarine
Because aquamarine’s light blue color is reminiscent of the sea, there is significance in its glassy, “mirror-like” reflection. Aquamarine is thought to be a gemstone of self-reflection, like looking at yourself face-to-face in the mirror. Wearing this stone is believed to bring out your inner truth and allow for your thoughts to be spoken clearly, even in difficult times.
