Origin and history.
Aquamarine is a precious mineral that belongs to the beryl group. It has a soft blue color and is named after the sea. Aqua means water and Marina means sea in Latin. According to ancient legends, it was the stone of the mermaids and gave the finder unconditional love. The Greeks and Romans liked to give Aquamarine as a gift to each other as a symbol of love and fidelity.
Aquamarine has been used for centuries as an important healing stone. It seems to help very well with allergic reactions, insect bites and eye problems.
Unfortunately, because Aquamarine is quite expensive, imitations are often sold. This can vary from colored glass to processed topaz and tourmaline.
Aquamarine is sometimes also made synthetically, so always pay attention when you buy something!
Aquamarine is found in Namibia, Zambia, America, Brazil, Kenya, Myanmar, Madagascar, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Russia, Myanmar and Zimbabwe.
