For a gemstone that has the same colour as the sea, it’s no wonder that gazing upon an aquamarine brings the same calming effect one can get as if staring at the ocean waves. Jewellers in Reading and Berkshire take a close look at aquamarine as one of the most popular gemstones in the world. Not only has it distinguished itself amongst other jewels because of its blue hue, but also for its qualities that make it the perfect gem for March birthday celebrants and brides.
The Sailor’s Stone
Derived from the Latin words “aqua” (water) and “mare” (sea), the gemstone was said to have been originated from a treasure chest of fabulous mermaids. Since then, aquamarine has been used as a lucky stone for sailors.
