March Birthstone

As March rolls in, so does the beautiful aquamarine birthstone.
The serene blue or blue-green color is thought to cool the temperature, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea.  This gemstone was believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage.
