MARCH – AQUAMARINE
Aquamarine symbolizes loyalty, honesty, and beauty. Aquamarine is a pastel stone that is
greenish-blue in color. The name is derived from Latin, meaning “sea” and “water.” Hues
range from a nearly colorless whitish-blue to a rich teal, but the most valued color is a
vivid blue aqua shade. Because of its durability, aquamarine is often used in rings.
However, many believe that its beautiful color is better suited to more delicate settings of earrings
and pendants. In the U.S., aquamarine deposits are found in the eastern states of Connecticut,
Maine, North Carolina, Vermont, and New Hampshire, as well as Colorado.
