aquamarine: the freshness of march birthstone

  • Aquamarine: the freshness of March birthstone

The awesomely refreshing pool blue of the March birthstone calls you for a splashy dive right into this awesome ilk from the Beryl mineral family. Aquamarine, a very calming blue, reminiscent of the Caribbean Sea is formed in variations of colours from dark blue to mildly greenish blue with trivial intensity and excellent transparency. The official birthstone for those born in March, Aquamarine is noticeably hard with an impressive glass-like lustre and most popular for its heart-stirring sea-blue colours. The name ‘Aquamarine’ is derived from an old Latin expression which means ‘seawater’.

The beryl is aquamarine’s species, and other beryls include emerald. The two are appeasing coloured stones that are not as hard as a diamond and need a little bit of extra care while cleaning.  You can use a soft dampened cloth to clean the stone and setting. It is also recommended to avoid chemicals to keep the gemstone’s sparkling bright.


As per Gemological Institute of America (GIA), “aquamarine crystals are sometimes big enough to cut fashioned gems of more than 100 carats”. Aquamarine and other kinds of beryl are pretty durable and hard, from the range of 7.5 to 8 on Mohs scale of detecting mineral hardness. The most desirable and valuable Aquamarine colour is a dark and deeply saturated blue.

At GemTrove we believe that wearing your birthstone in jewellery gives a feeling of having a lucky day and good vibes all day from it. We offer a stunning collection of Aquamarine and Diamond Rings, Necklaces, Earrings and bracelets.
