The birthstone for the month of March, Aquamarine, got its name from two Latin words- aqua and marina, where Aqua means water and marina means the sea. The stone is believed to protect sailors and guarantee a safe voyage. The placid color of Aquamarine is believed to calm down the temper and therefore the one who wears it remains relaxed.
Factually, Aquamarine is a type of beryl. It is a mixture of beryllium, aluminum and silicate along with traces of iron which are embedded in the hexagonal crystalline structure of the stone.
Aquamarine is a fairly hard stone and to a large extent is insensitive to scratches and you can wear it on a daily basis.
