About the Aquamarine
The name of these beautiful gemstones with hues of light blues to blue-greens, was aptly derived from the Latin language and means “water of the sea”. The Aquamarine is another form of Beryl with trace s of Chromium, Vanadium, Iron and Manganese. Considered by some to enhance love and fidelity in relationships, the Aquamarine was historically used by sailors as protection from the sea and believed to be the stone of the mermaids.
