March Birthstone

Ancient Roman fisherman called Aquamarine the "water of the sea" and used it as a protection stone, for safe passage and gook luck with the catch.

Roman physicians used it to treat indigestion and bloat. Beads of Aquamarine have been found in Egyptian tombs and it was believed that the High Proest of the Second Temple wore engraved aquamarines with the six tribes of Israel.

Aquamarine is the primary birthstone for March, taking the place of bloodstone in 1952 due to an inconsistent supply of bloodstone for the demand.

Aquamarine was thought to make the wearer unconquerable and quickened the intellect.
