   Aquamarine, a universal symbol of youth, hope, and health, is the traditional birthstone for March.

   In ancient times, the stone was said to aid seafarers; thus it is an excellent gift for sailors or one who takes frequent cruises! To dream of aquamarine signifies the making of new friends; to wear aquamarine earrings brings love and affection. Aquamarine was said to prevent seasickness, quicken the intellect and enhance courage.

   Aquamarines are mined in a number of exotic places including Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, India and Mozambique, but most of the gemstones available today come from Brazil.
