Aquamarine: March's Birthstone
If you enjoy the rich, crystalline aqua blues that make Caribbean getaways so spectacular, then you should love aquamarine: the traditional birthstone for the month of March. As a matter of fact, aquamarine's name, derived from Latin, is a function of its color and means "water of the sea."
Aquamarine, however, pre-dates even the Roman Empire and has been highly prized for thousands of years. Revered for its oceanic colors, it was also considered by the ancients to have a number of very special qualities. Some felt it would improve one's courage or increase wisdom, while others felt it would help strengthen the bonds of lovers and married couples. A timeless stone, aqua's popularity and mystique have continued to grow over the centuries.
