Aquamarine - March Birthstone

People born in March are born with Aquamarine as their birthstone. 

This water element stone is the birthstone for March. Pale blue Aquamarine is the colour of the winter sky giving way to spring. It was first called "water of the sea" by Roman fishermen, who used it for protection over water.

The March birthstone is calming, soothing, and cleansing and inspires truth, trust and letting go. It is a blue-green stone that comes from Colombia and Brazil. It has good hardness. Iron is the substance that gives Aquamarine its colour which ranges from an almost barely visible pale blue to a strong sea blue.

Gemstones are used in crystal healing, an alternative medical technique, to cure ailments and protect against disease. Associated with the throat chakra, the March birthstone helps overcome the fear of speaking and is an excellent stone for teachers and presenters. Aquamarine is a stone of breath, the respiratory tract, and the lungs. It helps heal sinus conditions and coughing and is effective for hay fever and other chronic allergies. It is very soothing to wear as a necklace.

Aquamarine is a water element stone, powerful for cleansing the emotional body and opening communication. It is a wonderful stone for meditation as it quiets the mind and facilitates obtaining communication from higher planes.

For best results, Aquamarine should be worn next to the skin.
