What is the March birthstone?
March birthstone is a beautiful transparent blue mineral - aquamarine. Girls born in March are incredibly lucky. Their birthstone is not as expensive as a diamond, but it looks no less impressive and bewitching. It is always a pleasure to receive an aquamarine ring as a gift. In addition to its incredible beauty, aquamarine has magical properties. Residents of Ancient Hellas, for example, believed that a person under the influence of March birthstone was not susceptible to seasickness, had the ability to tame raging waves, and could hope to return from the most distant sea journeys. But at the same time, March's birthstone demanded honesty from the owner himself: aquamarine could lose its transparent blue color at the hand of a liar and a vicious person.
- By the way, a huge aquamarine weighing about 920 carats adorned the crown of Britain in the 17th century. This was done as a powerful symbol of power over the sea. Indeed, the British Royal Navy was and remains one of the most influential in Europe.
