Rectangle Aquamarine with Natural White Diamonds

 

 Aquamarine is the the birthstone for the month of March

Roman fishermen called the gemstone “water of the sea” and used it as protection, for safe travel by boat, and for luck in catching fish. Aquamarine was linked to the apostle St. Thomas who frequently traveled by boat. Roman physicians also used it to treat overeating and bloating.

The Sumerians, Egyptians, Hebrews, and Greeks all admired aquamarine gemstones. Beads were discovered with Egyptian mummies. And it was believed that the High Priest of the Second Temple wore aquamarine stones engraved with the six tribes of Israel. Two thousand years ago, people in Greece engraved designs into aquamarine stones, turning them into intaglios

Aquamarine, like emerald, is a form of beryl (Be3Al2(Si O3)6). As you might guess from its name, aquamarine has always had a connection with the sea. In ancient times, sailors wore it for protection. The Romans also felt it promoted friendship; a piece of aquamarine with a frog carved into it was a token of friendship. In fact, this was such a powerful talisman that giving an aquamarine frog to an enemy was supposed to turn that person into a friend.

Aquamarine was also supposed to rejuvenate marriages, making old love new again. On a less lofty note, it also relieved belching and yawning (though come to think of it, that alone might save more than a few marriages.) Its protective side extends beyond sailing. It was used to defend warriors in battle, and help innocent people stand up against malicious litigation. At its heart, aquamarine will always be a sea-loving stone, and there are even stories of using it to attract mermaids.
