Aquamarine is said to have calming and soothing properties, making it a popular choice for jewelry. The crystal is also believed to promote truth, honesty, and communication. Aquamarine is most commonly found in Brazil, Sri Lanka, and Madagascar. It typically ranges in color from pale blue to deep blue-green, and the stones are often cut into oval or emerald shapes.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March, and it is also the traditional gift for the 19th wedding anniversary.
