Probably Johann Wolfgang von Goethe wrote: “From the stones that are put in one’s path, one can build beautiful things. ” How true these words are can be seen from the beautiful birthstone March. Aquamarine has been used for at least 3000 years as a versatile piece of jewellery, for example as an amulet. References to aquamarine have been found in Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman writings. The word aquamarine actually consists of two words that describe this stone. “Aqua” comes from Latin and means water and “Marina” means something like “from the sea”. When you look at these beautiful gemstones, you will also understand why. As soon as you look at a monthly stone aquamarine, a feeling of calm and relaxation will envelop you. The birthstone March has a cool blue hue, which reminds you of a beautiful sea. Even the Greeks called it the sailor’s friend or the sailor’s stone. According to a legend, sailors believed that the aquamarine was a gift from mermaids. They believed that wearing it would protect them from drowning or prevent seasickness. Supposedly, they also adorned their ships with gems to encourage calm seas and thus keep them from sinking. What else can be stormy but the sea? Love!
An aquamarine to smooth the waves of the restless sea was also considered the perfect amulet to calm the storms in a marriage. Thus, the birthstone aquamarine was popularly chosen as a gift among married couples to support a harmonious marriage. Even in ancient Rome, lovers exchanged aquamarines as gifts. Amulets, necklaces or rings were perfect to signal pure love rather than lust in their relationship. The birthstone March is a gemstone with depth. In the following, however, let’s look at how it is understood today as a birthstone before we sink into the exciting story.
