Picture the cerulean blue waters of the Mediterranean, the crystalline waves lapping at the blindingly bright sand as small colorful fish flit about in shallows, the warm breeze stirring the palm fronds just above you as you rest in the shade. A scene of complete contentment and relaxation.
March’s birthstone, aquamarine
, effortlessly evokes such island scenes with its delicate and mesmerizing beautiful blue. Derived from the Latin “aqua” meaning water, and “mare” meaning sea, this stone closely resembles its namesake: the beautiful Mediterranean.
The ancient Romans believed that aquamarine was sacred to Neptune, the god of the sea. Ancient lore tells of the stones having fallen from the jewel boxes of sirens and washed onto shore. Early sailors wore aquamarine talismans, engraved with the likeness of Neptune, as protection against dangers at sea.
Because of this history, a gift of aquamarine symbolizes both safety and security, especially within long standing relationships.
There are some who say that aquamarine has the power to reawaken love in a tired marriage, so if you want to bring back that spark in your partner’s eyes, you might consider this gem as an anniversary gift!
The calming beauty of the Mediterranean sea evoked by aquamarine is sure to transform weariness to contentment, stress to relaxation and uncertainty to calm, bringing a much needed breath of fresh air into all your relationships.
