It is time for March's Birthstone, aquamarine!

The ancient Romans believed that this stone was sacred to Neptune, the god of the sea. It was thought to have fallen from the jewelry boxes of sirens where it then washed up on shore. Early sailors would carve Neptune's image into the stone and were it as a talisman to protect them from the dangers of the sea. Romans also believed carving a frog into the stone would help to reconcile enemies and make them friends. It was also thought to absorb the atmosphere of young love. It was a common gift for the groom to give to his wife after the consummation of their marriage.

In the middle ages it was a popular antidote for poison. It was also popular as an oracle stone. It was also used to help find lost or hidden things.
