Aquamarine, named for the Latin phrase "water of the sea", is the blue to blue-green variety Beryl. Aquamarine ranges in color from a faint light blue to blue and bluish-green, with lighter colored stones being the more common type.
Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids, and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness.
