History: Aquamarine is the traditional birthstone for march. It is a beautiful blue gem as clear and transparent as sea water from which it gets its name. Ideally, the pastel sea blue color of Aquamarine is best without any gray or green tones. Most Aquamarines are heated to remove traces of green and yellow.

Protection and Courage is given to those who sail the sea when this stone is worn.
