Aquamarine for March






Aquamarine is the stone for March, one of my favourites, gorgeous uncut or in both faceted and cabochon cuts.






Aquamarine is from the Beryl family, and comes in fabulous shades of blues and greens.






Aquamarine from Latin, aqua marina, meaning 'Sea water.'






Historically the stone has been worn by fishermen and sailors for good luck and protection, it has also been associated as the stone of courage, easing fears, phobias and reducing stress.


Aquamarine looks gorgeous with silver and gold, and looks fabulous in a twig ring.......
