Aquamarine is a stone as sea blue as it sounds. The stone ranges from a nearly colorless blue to a blue-green and even somewhat teal hue. The most rare color is a deep, aqua blue.

Many sailors kept this stone with them on their journeys, holding fast to the belief that the gem would bring calm waters and ensure their safety. Another superstition surrounding the stone involves its ability to boost the happiness within marriages. Additionally, it was thought that the mineral beryl—which is the makeup of Aquamarines—protects the wearer from enemies in battle or lawsuits. As a healing stone during the middle ages, aquamarines treated anxiety and were thought to reduce the effects of poison.

The most treasured aquamarines originate from Brazil. The stone is also mined in Afghanistan, Kenya, Madagascar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Russia, and Zambia. The gem serves as the birthstone for the month of March, as well as an object to commemorate sixteenth and nineteenth wedding anniversaries.
