The name ‘aquamarine’ is derived from the Latin word for seawater. Similar to other gemstones, it comes in a spectrum of colours, ranging from deep green-blue to light, slightly greenish blue hues. But the most iconic and well-regarded shade for aquamarine is, of course, the stunning pastel sky blue which also bears resemblance to the bright colour of the sea, hence the name. Faceted aquamarine is usually free of inclusions and as clear as water, granting it the reputation of being a symbol of spiritual purity.
This March birthstone is also known as the perfect gift for a 19th wedding anniversary, bringing happiness to marriage and calming stormy waters.
