March Birthstone

The March Birthstone is Aquamarine

The birthstone for March is Aquamarine meaning ‘water of the sea’ in Latin and is associated with many legends of sailors. The alternative March gemstone is earthy Bloodstone and both gems are listed as official March birthstones.

The Aquamarine mineral is a type of beryl and is formed over millions of years when water became trapped in rock cavities during geological processes. The six main varieties of beryl are aquamarine (blue-green), emerald (green), morganite (pink), red beryl (red), heliodor (yellow) and maxixe (deep blue). 

The March birthstone color is light blue which is the primary shade of aquamarine. This gemstone aptly reflects the tranquil blue-greens of the ocean symbolizing calm and peace. Aquamarine is generally very pale in color to almost transparent and is rarely found naturally in darker blue shades. The March birth flower is the Daffodil.
