Aquamarine is a stone of “noble blood”, one of the most attractive types of beryl. Its closest "relatives" are emerald, sapphire, and ruby. Perhaps this fact explains the nature of the divine beauty of the stone. Aquamarine got its name from the merger of two words "aqua" - water and "marinus" - the sea, which in Latin sounds like "seawater". And although this name of the stone was presented by the famous ancient Roman sage Pliny the Elder, it came into use thanks to the scientific works of the Belgian scientist and doctor Anselm Boethius de Boot only in 1609. In addition to the name "aquamarine", the name "noble beryl" is also applied to the mineral.
Description of blue aquamarine:

Blue aquamarine history
Aquamarine has been known to humanity for a long time, but worldwide fame for this luxurious stone came only in the Middle Ages. Ancient sailors thought that the stone was able to pacify sea storms and suggest the right path. It was believed that it is best to wear this gem in the form of pendants, necklaces, or beads so that the "soul of the sea" is closer to the heart.
In the aristocratic environment, it was fashionable to combine aquamarines and diamonds in one accessory, symbolizing the elements of Water and Air. Bohemian beauties and cunning schemers of the royal courts of Europe carefully watched the color of the stone of their rivals. It was believed that aquamarine is able to reflect the mood and well-being of its owner. Therefore, if the sky-blue aquamarine became cloudy and acquired a greenish color, then the lady is in a bad mood and in a disorder of feelings.
Especially highly appreciated in medieval Europe aquamarines from India, perfectly clear crystals of stunningly delicate, heavenly shade. In the jewelry collections of the British royal house today, there are many pieces of jewelry with luxurious Indian aquamarines.
Modern jewelry designers and jewelers love aquamarine. Whatever shape the master gives the aquamarine, the stone always looks amazing!
