Aquamarine is a member of the Beryl family and colored by iron. It can be anywhere from a steely blue to a blue green or anywhere in between.
The name “aquamarine” is derived from two Latin words: aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “of the sea.”
It has been said that the mineral beryl gives the wearer protection against foes in battle or litigation. It makes the wearer unconquerable and amiable, and also quickens the intellect.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
