March Birthstone
Aquamarine
  
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "water of the sea," and reflects its sparkling ocean-like color. Many use Aquamarine to ride the positive waves toward closure or a major life change of a higher consciousness. This water-like stone can wash away stress and fear, leaving room for peace and tranquility. Aquamarine is said to protect the psyche from taking on dark vibrations and negative behavioral patterns. Aquamarine is associated with water, which gives it a cooling effect on the body. We suggest placing an Aquamarine gem over areas that are inflamed or painful so it may aid in the healing process. Aquamarine is known to be a stone of courage.  Its calming energies reduce stress and quiet the mind. As a travel crystal, Aquamarine protects those who journey by sea, taking away the fear of water, and guards those involved in any long-haul travel such as flying or driving long distances. As a love crystal, pale blue Aquamarine encourages a lover to return, helping two people living with different lifestyles to come together in harmony and reduces the effects of sensitive issues that cause quarrels.
