Aquamarine - March Birthstone

Hello, fellow mermaids and lovers of all things aquatic!

March is here and with it the alluring Aquamarine; March birthstone, and gemstone of Piscis in the Zodiac. It is also the stone given for the 19th Wedding anniversary. 

The subtly hued Aquamarine is the one that has always attracted me the mostout of all the"fancier" gemstones at gem and bead shows. It has a soothing and very appealing energy, especially when faceted into delicate briolettes or tiny rondelles. My preference is for the slightly more opaque varieties, although many of you may be more familiar with the crystal clear blues found in more traditional jewelry. Below we will explore both types and I will also share with you a few examples of Aquamarine jewelry in my current collection.

It is often referred to as a beginner stone as it is widely known and extremely popular. It is used not only for jewelry but in home decor. I bet you have seen the stunning Amethyst Geode crystals that can be as small as to fit on a desk to large and spectacular sculpture-like geodes that can tower several feet from the floor.
