March Birthstone – Aquamarine


Happy birthday, aquamarine babies! These balmy gems were named for the Latin word for seawater, and with their blue to green hues it's not hard to see why. Some believed that aquamarines were the treasure of mermaids, and to this day these cool-toned gems are considered powerful for opening communication and calming (for those who wear them).

Aquamarines are a beryl mineral and relatively durable, registering at a 7.5 to an 8 on the MOHS scale. Traces of iron within aquamarines cause their oceanic colors; the more intense shade of blue, the more valuable the aquamarine.
