Aquamarine, the March Birthstone and its Meaning and Powers

The beautiful aquamarine, the birthstone of those born in March and the anniversary gift for 19 years, has long been associated with water. Its qualities are thought to be especially strong when in water and placing the gem in water on the night of a full moon was thought to revitalize its powers. Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and sailors carried it as a talisman for luck. They were known to throw their gems into the water in an attempt to calm the gods during storms.

Today, aquamarine is a stone thought to bring happiness and protection to all who travel near or on water. It is considered an all purpose healing stone, used for spiritual, psychological issues as well as physical diseases.
