Aquamarine Jewelry


I must go down to the sea again,
To the lonely sea and the sky

-John Masefield
"Sea Fever" from Saltwater Ballads, 1913


Although a claim is made for the month by the bloodstone, or heliotrope, the modern day March birthstone as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912, is the aquamarine. Sharing the celebration of the 16th wedding anniversary with the topaz, the aquamarine has the 19th all to herself. She's a hardy stone as well, rating a respectable 7.5 -8 on Mohs scale. To a large extent, the aquamarine is immune to scratches.

A member of the beryl family, the aquamarine is sometimes referred to a 'blue beryl'. The name 'aquamarine' is, of course Latin. It translates as 'water of the sea', which in turn, gives a clue as to its color. Interestingly, although beryl comes in many colors, the name 'beryl' comes for the Greek 'beryllios', which means 'blue/green like sea water'.

According to some sources, beryllios was the stone in the breastplate of Aaron which stood for the tribe of Asher. From some descriptions, the stone could have been an aquamarine.
