Aquamarine has been treasured for centuries for a variety of reasons. The gem gets it’s name from the Latin words “aqua marina” meaning “sea water”. The sparkling blue color is reminiscent of the waters of the vacation paradise islands of the Caribbean. Ancient Greeks believed the stone embodied the spirit of the sea and had the power to protect sailors through long and dangerous voyages.
Today the stone is known as a symbol of eternal youth. New age gem therapy recommends the stone to calm your nerves and relax your body. Aquamarine is a variety of the mineral called beryl. Pure beryl is colorless. Add a trace of iron and you have Aquamarine. Other varieties beryl include Emerald and Morganite.
