Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
The name is derived from two Latin words, aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “of the sea.” It was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea.
March’s birthstone was also thought to enhance the happiness of marriages.
Aquamarine’s fresh watery hue is a cool plunge into a refreshing pool. What better way to say goodbye to winter and celebrate the onset of Spring!
