Aquamarine is one of the most popular and best-known gemstones. It’s a pale to medium blue-green stone, similar in colour to the sky and sea. The delicate, cool blue colour suggests class and sophistication, a gorgeous alternative to a classic diamond in an engagement ring.
Ranking at a 7.5/8 on the MOHS scale of hardness, Aquamarine is an incredible choice for an everyday ring. The hardness of the stone protects it to a large extent from getting damaged, meaning it’s a brilliant choice for everyday wear.
Aquamarine was first discovered in the Adun-Chalon mountains in Siberia in 1723. The majority of Aquamarine gemstones are found in Brazil, but they can also be found in Kenya, Madagascar, Russia and Zambia. The name “Aquamarine” is derived from the Latin word for seawater.
Meaning behind the Aquamarine Gemstone
Aquamarine is the birthstone given to the month of March. Like emerald and morganite, Aquamarine is a variety of the beryl mineral. Believed to be the treasure of mermaids, Aquamarine was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck ensuring the safe and prosperous passage across stormy seas.
The soothing energy of Aquamarine makes it a perfect companion to calm fears and phobias. The gorgeous gem is known to be a symbol of happiness, lasting love and everlasting youth.
As the gemstone is closely associated with water, it is said to have a cooling effect on the body. This water-like stone is said to wash away stress and fear, leaving room for peace and tranquility in their absence.
