Aquamarine, Stone of the Sea

Aquamarine is the Birthstone of March, a Sea-green to a transparent blue, it’s very name means Seawater (aqua=water marine=sea).

The stone in the photo is NOT an Aquamarine, it is a blue Topaz (I gave that ring to my Mother!) ; the only reason it is here is because that is exactly what Aquamarine looks like (I haven’t been able to “get my hands” on a real Aquamarine, but I know a girl in my Church that has an Aquamarine pendant).

Hardness:7.5
