Aquamarine is March´s birthstone and Pisces gemstone

Aquamarine is March’s birthstone and Pisces gemstone. 
Its blue and green tonalities are a sort of a springtime announcement. Being both the color of the sea and the sky made it be considered a traveler’s stone. 
 
In ancient times, sailors carved aquamarine into shapes in Neptune´s honor and slept with an aquamarine crystal beneath their pillows, believing they would be back home safely.
Ancient Egyptians believed that putting aquamarine beaded jewelry in tombs would ensure a successful afterlife journey.
 
Aquamarine is normally a very clear gemstone, without inclusions, clear as an ocean sky on a sunny day.
