A stone of courage and serenity…Clear light blue, blue-green, this lovely and gentle gem evokes the sea in both its name and its color. The ancients saw this as a stone of courage and felt that carrying it would help them return safe and prosperous from all sea voyages.
From lightest sky-blue to the deep blue of the sea … aquamarines show all these shades of an exceptionally beautiful range of usually light blues. It is truly a quite fascinating stone.
Beads of aquamarine have been found in ancient Egyptian mummy pits. It is held in quite high regard in the East as the Stone of the Seer and Mystic, a gemstone that imparts purity to the wearer, as well as encouraging the gentle nature and personality in the wearer. It is a symbol of peace.
