Birthstone of the Month - Aquamarine

With their gorgeous, clear, transparent blue color and incredible shine, it is no wonder that Aquamarines, the birthstone of March, are a favorite stone even when they are not your birthstone. Derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and mare or marina, meaning the sea, they were believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage.  While others believed that their serene color cooled the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded.  

Aquamarine is a relatively hard stone, 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, making it very tough and resistant to scratches. Valued by their depth of color, which is caused by iron in the stone, they range from an extremely pale blue to a strong sea-blue, the more intense the color, the more valuable. Weighing over 110 kg, the largest Aquamarine of gemstone quality was found in Marambaia, Minas Gerais, Brazil, in 1910. The largest cut Aquamarine is the Dom Pedro. Weighing 26 kg and cut in 1992, this stunning, faceted gemstone can be viewed at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History.

Aquamarines are primarily mined in Brazil, but they are also found in Columbia, Zambia, Tanzania, Madagascar, Malawi and Kenya. They can also be found within the United States, in central Colorado and Wyoming.
