More about Aquamarine

Our aquamarine gemstone beads are a wonderful soft blue-green color. These beads have a lovely internal texture; some portions of each bead are milky and translucent whereas other portions are transparent.

In the middle ages, people thought that aquamarine could overcome the effects of poison, and ancient mariners believed that mermaids’ lower bodies were made of aquamarine. Brazil is the leading producer of aquamarine; this gemstone is also mined in Pakistan, Russia, and the United States.

Beryl is a beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate mineral that comes in several gemstone quality varieties, one of which is this gorgeous sea blue aquamarine (other varieties of beryl include emerald, heliodor, and morganite). Aquamarine gets its gorgeous color from trace amounts of iron, and its name from the Latin “aqua marina”, meaning “sea water”.

Metaphysically, aquamarine acts as a protection stone for sea travelers. This belief goes back to ancient times. Today, this stone is known more generally as a stone of good luck and balance. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
