I cannot forgive myself for letting this post for the last day of the month…this is not going to happen again!
So for March the birthstone is a wonderful gemstone with one of my favorite colors… Aquamarine!

Aquamarine is a blue to green-blue variety of precious beryl. The beryl group of minerals is most famous for chromium-rich, green emerald, which happens to be one of the ‘Precious Four’ gems of the world (diamond, sapphire and ruby are the remaining three).
The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. Aquamarine originated in the treasure chest of fabulous mermaids, and has, since ancient times, been regarded as ‘the sailors’ lucky stone’.
Aquamarine is said to be of help for arthritis, eye inflammation, sore throat and varicose veins. The serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. The safest approach is to wear the gemstone in contact with the skin, especially close to the injured or troubled part of the body.
