March Birthstone: Aquamarine

March Birthstone: Aquamarine

Rebirth and the beginning of new life are hallmarks of this month. However it is one that is often very unpredictable – calm moments of warmth are contrasted with heavy moments of winter distress. As a result, those born in this month are blessed with aquamarine, a light green birthstone that is connected with healing and the soothing powers of the ocean.

In the past, it was used to cure heart, liver, and stomach diseases – just soak the stone in water and drink the water to get the benefits. It is reflective of the turbulent waters of the ocean, well representing the sometimes virulent and exciting personality of those born in March.
