March Aquamarine Rings

Aquamarine is considered to be one of the best-known gemstones and is known worldwide as the birthstone of the month of March. Aquamarine was first discovered in Siberia during 1723 and obtained its name from the Latin word “aqua marina” which translates to “sea water.” This is in reference to the beautiful greenish- blue seawater color it contains. Usually, the color tends to be more vibrant in larger stones. The color of Aquamarine is contributed by the amount of iron impurities in its beryl structure. To increase the blue hue within the Aquamarine it is often at times heated at low temperatures to reduce the green cast and enhance the lovely ocean blue.

In history, Aquamarine was valued as importance to Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. They saw this mineral as a symbol of happiness and everlasting youth. It was deemed as the “Sailors Friend” to both Greeks and Romans to ensure a safe and prosperous journey across the sea. During medieval times there were mentions of Aquamarine being an antidote for poison in William Langland’s “The Vision Concerning Piers and the Plowman.” The gem quickly became in popular demand throughout Europe due to this reason and due to the rising number of poisonings within the royal community. Not only was it believed to be a remedy for poison but also a way to bring back the love into the relationships of married couples. All throughout history Aquamarine was and still is a must have for various reasons and beliefs.
