The March birthstone is aquamarine. Aquamarine is a famous gemstone which gets its name from the Latin word for seaweed as its typical natural color is strikingly similar to the color of seaweed. Aquamarine has been a very popular stone throughout history as it has been thought to give everything from invincibility to soldiers in ancient times to giving a renewal of love to married couples in medieval times. Aquamarine was especially popular amongst royalty as it was thought that simply wearing the gemstone would protect against illness or heal one of current illness.
Today Aquamarine is harvested the most in Brazil. The largest aquamarine stone has come out of Brazil in 1910 weighing 243 pounds. Aquamarine is identified with the apostle St. Thomas due to his long journeys to India via the seas. Today aquamarine has been attributed as the birthstone of March.
