What is Aquamarine?
Aquamarine is a popular gemstone that has been used to make jewelry for thousands of years. The crystals are part of the beryl family and slowly formed in cavities in granite rock. The crystals get their beautiful bluish/greenish hues from tiny traces of iron. Aquamarine is an exceptionally durable crystal with a hardness of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale.
Why Aquamarine is a Truly Special Gemstone
Aquamarine - Latin for seawater - has been recognized for its unique qualities since ancient times. There’s something about the intriguing blue (and even slightly greenish) hues of Aquamarine that draws spiritual people to the stones. The best Aquamarine jewelry uses stones that combine good clarity with clear transparency.
Although Aquamarine is a water stone, some of the best gems are mined high in Pakistan’s remote Karakoram mountains, almost at the roof of the world and not far from the Himalayas. Stones from the Espirito Santo region of Brazil also have a reputation for their fine colors and clarity.
Aquamarine Jewelry in History
Merchants and traders brought Aquamarine stones to ancient Europe across the desert and sea. They were prized for their beauty and calming effect. The ancient Romans believed Aquamarine jewelry could protect seafarers from sudden storms or pirates. As a last resort, Roman sailors would throw their Aquamarine gems into the sea to appease the angry gods.
The Romans also used crystals to ward off illness, particularly throat, stomach, and liver ailments. The famous Roman writer Pliny the Elder was a fan of Aquamarine, and he praised the stone’s virtues in his writing almost two thousand years ago.
"The lovely Aquamarine, which seems to have come from some mermaid's treasure house, in the depths of the summer sea, has charms not to be denied".
Many crystal lovers today believe that Aquamarine has protective qualities and positive health benefits. Aquamarine has been popular for thousands of years and across many cultures.
The Healing Properties of Aquamarine
People who value crystals and gemstones for their healing properties place a high value on aquamarine. There are different schools of thought about the actual benefits that Aquamarine provides. People who see Aquamarine as a water stone believe that it can balance the function of the kidneys and the liver, and generally create harmony and good health.
Other new-age traditions claim that Aquamarine is closely associated with the throat chakra and can help wearers with communication and assertiveness. They believe that Aquamarine jewelry can be positive for people who struggle to express emotions or who need to develop greater wisdom.
You don’t need to believe in the special powers of crystals or birthstones to appreciate the wonderful calming, and soothing properties of aquamarine’s crystalline blues and greenish hues. Locally mined Aquamarine is popular with Brazilian monks who use it as an aid for meditation and quiet reflection.
Aquamarine Birthstone Jewelry
Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March and is particularly prized by Pisceans as a water stone. If you have a loved one or a friend who was born in March, an Aquamarine ring or set of Aquamarine earrings is a wonderful birthday gift.
Birthstone jewelry is also a special gift for other occasions. It’s the ideal small Christmas present or graduation gift, or just a way to show thanks or appreciation. If you want to buy someone a birthstone jewelry gift, a Boho Magic Gift Card allows them to shop the entire online collection.
Gift cards start at just $50 and go all the way up to $500 (perfect if you have several kids or grandkids). When you buy any Boho Magic jewelry online with a gift card you’re guaranteed free US shipping and 60-day returns.
925 Sterling Silver
Our jewelers love to use 925 sterling silver as settings and mounts for Aquamarine gemstones. The gleaming silver showcases and compliments the gems, without detracting from their beauty. Polished silver creates an effective contrast with the blue Aquamarine crystals, especially the striking cobalt blue stones. Where we use Aquamarine with a greenish hue, the effect is more subtle but just as stylish.
925 sterling silver is a robust alloy you can wear daily without risking dents or scratches. It’s also easy to polish to a bright shine. Jewelers have used 925 sterling silver for at least a thousand years, which is usually also suitable for people with sensitive skin.
How to Clean Your Aquamarine Jewelry
Aquamarine is a hard stone (7.5 - 8 on the Mohs scale). The best way to clean it is simply with warm soapy water and a soft cloth. You shouldn’t need to apply much pressure to the stone to remove any dirt, before patting it dry. The best way to clean the 925 sterling silver setting is with any silver polish from your local hardware store or supermarket. Just follow the instructions on the packet.
Fashion Suggestions for Aquamarine
