'A March born shall always be

soothed by Aqua, gem of sea

This mermaid's treasured stone you wear

will bring happiness, love, affection and care.'

March's birthstone is Aquamarine. Pisces the fish its sign. Neptune its Ruler.  

Aquamarine is the blue, or blue-green variety of the mineral beryl and the birthstone for March. 

Aquamarine jewelry is associated with beauty, honesty, love and happiness. It is said to reawaken or re-spark a tired relationship, so it is often chosen for an anniversary gift.

Sarraf Jewelry carries a beautiful Aquamarine ring, for both male and female Pisces who are proud of their location on the astrological wheel.

Another tale surrounding the Aquamarine is that it originated from a mermaid's treasure chest, and that certainly seems likely to us!

Derived from the Roman word "aqua," meaning water, and "mare," meaning sea, this pale blue gemstone reminds us of cerulean, or the blue color of seawater. The ancient Romans believed that Aquamarine was sacred to Neptune, god of the sea. Early sailors even wore Aquamarine charms, some crafted in the likeness of Neptune, for luck and protection against danger while at sea. 

Aquamarine's association with water led to the belief that it was more powerful when immersed and water in which it had been submerged was used to heal a variety of illnesses. 

Aquamarine varies in color from clear blue to a vibrant, almost emerald-like, shade. It is a very hard mineral, making it a very durable stone, and the majority of Aquamarines, unlike other gemstones, are flawless. It is also relatively abundant, with especially large deposits found in Brazil. 

Aquamarine is the symbol of friendship and loyalty, so it's a perfect choice for your favorite Pisces.
