This month, we are in love with Aquamarine, the birthstone for March!

The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin words aqua, meaning water, and marina meaning the sea. The name reflects the beautiful blue colour of the stone, which can range from pale blue to deep indigo.

Historically, Aquamarine was considered to be sacred to Neptune, the Roman God of the Sea. The Greeks used to wear amulets made of aquamarine engraved with Poseidon (the Lord of the Sea). Aquamarine was also believed to protect sailors and guarantee a safe voyage. Legend has it that the powers of Aquamarine are even stronger when it's immersed in water.
