AQUAMARINE BIRTHSTONE

AQUAMARINE BIRTHSTONE

Happy Birthday to all that share this month; Aquamarine is your birthstone
 
The word Aquamarine is derived from two Latin words that mean water and marina. When blended, they mean "of the sea."  Aquamarine is said to evoke the purity of the crystalline waters, to inspire truth and trust. It is even believed to have calmed waves in order to keep sailors safe at sea.  In ancient lore, Aquamarine was the treasure of mermaids and a talisman of good luck and protection.  
 
With Aquamarine's calming color range of watery blues to blue-green, it is very hard to deny the soothing appeal.  The most prized Aquamarines are a string blue and worthy of a diamond setting, versatile enough to be set in gold and platinum, dependent upon the final design. 
 
Aquamarine is often exceptionally transparent, although it can have brilliance.  I prefer Aquamarine in an elegant emerald cut to show off the play of light and the depth within. However, Aquamarine is faceted in various shapes from the classic round brilliant, ethereal cabochons or artistically carved into sculpture.
 
Aquamarine is adored by collectors of all ages, and complements any skin tone. It  is considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness; known to bring peace, clear the mind, and help you speak the truth.  
 
Enjoy your birthstone, may it bring you all of these qualities and more!

THE TUCSON TANGO
THE TUCSON TANGO

February 22, 2020

Gemstones from around the world in their various forms are inspiring, but I found my true inspiration within the souls of the people I had the pleasure of spending time with. It was a magical trip of friendship, laughter, and passion, so when the music stopped and I packed up my dancing shoes, well, the Tucson withdrawal was real.
