March -Madness: Mad About Aquamarine, The March Birthstone

I wish I could change my birthday to March  just to have Aquamarine as my birthstone.

Here are just a few March birthstone, #handmadejewelry gift ideas  that I found on #Etsy.com. 

Want to see these and more? Visit the artisans shops on Etsy:



Rough or smooth, it is gorgeous in every shade and grade:


The gemstone has so many personalities.  My personal favorite is not shown in the above chart because it would be considered 'too low grade" . It is  'moss-aquamarine" which is full of 'inclusions" (or gunk). 'Mossy" gemstones are so popular these days because of their earthy splendor. 

As few as ten years ago, or so, these beauties would have been tossed because they were considered "low grade" due to their inclusions (which is actually mineralization). Just take a look at delezhen's ring and venusvelvet's earrings to get an idea of moss-aquamarine's splendor.

 Wanna get some....!
This is my favorite place to buy the best Moss Aquamarine - TheBusyLittleBeads - on Etsy

"Aquamarine" comes from the Latin “aqua” = water and “mare” = sea. Its sea-blue color has lead to its being called  “The Sailor’s Stone.”   Legend has cast it as a sacred gem of Poseidon ~ God of the sea, and a magical treasure found in the lair of mermaids.

The breezy, watery  blue gemstone is believed by some to have a gentling effect,  to protect voyagers from tempests; to pacify the mind; to give ease and fluency of speech; promote compassion and trust, and lastly, to bring good health.

Pretty AND smart. I'll take two!
