Aquamarine, the birth stone of March, is a member of the beryl family, which includes the emerald, but aquamarine is less brittle and more durable than emerald, which makes it an excellent choice for jewelry that will be worn frequently. Aquamarine ranges in color from light blue to bluish green to deep blue, which is the most valuable and desirable color. Be sure to store aquamarine jewelry in a dark place, as it often becomes paler if left out in the sun. Also be aware that far too much blue topaz (which is much cheaper) has been sold as aquamarine (but not here!). The legendary origin of aquamarine is that it was found in mermaids' treasure chests, making it renowned as a lucky stone for sailors. Its name is derived from the Latin words for "water" and "sea." Consequently, aquamarine is said to protect from perils of the sea, including seasickness. It also is said to heal nerve pain, glandular problems, toothaches and disorders of the neck, jaw and throat. Aquamarine is also said to have a soothing influence on land, especially with couples. Its power to help them work out their differences and ensure a long and happy life makes it a good anniversary gift. Dreaming of aquamarine is said to mean you will meet new friends. Sources of aquamarine include Brazil, India, Russia, Mozambique, Madagascar, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
