March Birthstone: The Aquamarine
Aquamarine, the birthstone for the month of March, has a vibrant colour and symbolises youth, health and hope. As a variety of the mineral beryl, an aquamarine ranges in colour from greenish blues to blues of a light tone. The cool colour of this precious gemstone particularly compliments jewellery pieces set in white gold and platinum. Derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water and marine, meaning the sea.
The stone is primarily mined in Brazil, Africa, Pakistan, Russia, China and United States. The largest aquamarine was found in Brazil, that weighed over 240 pounds. An ideal birthstone for the spring month, Aquamarine accents any spring/summer outfit. The beautiful stone is also a symbol of 19th wedding anniversaries. It has been said that aquamarine makes its wearer unconquerable and quickens ones intellect.
