The birthstone for the month of March is Aquamarine. It can vary in hue from blue to greenish blue. It’s name comes from two Latin words: aqua, meaning “water,” and marina, meaning “of the sea.” It was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe.

Aquamarine is the green-blue to blue variety of the mineral beryl. Emerald is the well known green variety of beryl.

The largest gem quality Aquamarine crystal ever found weighs a whopping 244 pounds! It is nineteen inches tall and fifteen inches in diameter.
