About Aquamarine

Aquamarine, the birthstone for March, is one of the most popular members of the beryl family, which makes it a “sibling” stone to emerald and morganite.

The wonderful, cool, inviting sea-blue colours appear in different shades, from translucent sky blue to pale or pastel sky blue, or sometimes deep blue. On the MOHs scale of gemstone hardness, Aquamarine has a hardness of 7.5-8 and this makes it an ideal outfit companion.

If you’re looking for good luck, protection and courage, Aquamarine is your go-to gem. It helps you communicate clearly, and the colour, reminiscent of the sea, brings calm and peace. Any time you’re caught in a confrontational situation, the strength of Aquamarine will serve you well to state your case clearly, and calmly. Aquamarine has also been said to protect pregnant women and their babies from harm.
