Aquamarine – March

Legend claims that the Aquamarine was blessed by the god of the sea. Thereafter it was used by sailors on their voyages as they believed it would protect them and keep them safe.

It is light blue or aqua in colour, derived from trace amounts of iron impurities found in the Beryl structure. The darker the blue, the more prized it becomes.

The Aquamarine is closely related to the Emerald, derived from the Beryl family. It is also considered to be an appropriate gift for a 19th wedding anniversary.
