Color is seldom purely white, more often it is white  with shades of pink, blue and green color. According to a legend, pearl is  formed from dew which is itself tears of the goddess of Love.

Pearl is the birthstone of June and it is also a talisman of arts, inspiration and spiritual perfection. It was believed that pearl strengthens visual acuity and heals ears diseases. It is beneficial for heart, lungs, kidneys, and liver. Pearl possesses sedative effect, neutralizes poison and lowers acidity.

Oxidized Sterling Silver Aquamarine Earrings

Aquamarine Oxidized Sterling Silver EarringsThese lovely blue aquamarine gemstone oxidized sterling silver earrings could be found here.

Aquamarine is a blue to green-blue gemstone, a variety of beryl. The beryl group of minerals is most famous for chromium-rich, green emerald, which happens to be one of the ‘Precious Four’ gems of the world (diamond, sapphire and ruby are the remaining three). Aquamarine varies in color from blue-green to a light sky blue, and for generations, those stones containing green are often heat-treated to remove this less desirable color. Surprisingly, unlike other gemstones, the majority of aquamarines are flawless.

It is most famous for its breathtaking sea-blue colors which can range from light blue to dark blue. Created by combining Latin words for water (aqua) and sea (mare), aquamarine does indeed resemble the bottomless blue of seawater.

Aquamarine is mined primarily in Brazil, Nigeria and Zambia but the leading producer of aquamarine is Brazil, with many mines spread throughout the country. Other deposits of Aquamarine are sourced from Australia, Myanmar (Burma), China, India, Kenya, Madagascar, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Zambia, Zimbabwe, as well as in several U.S. locations. Karur, India recently has become one of the biggest suppliers of Aquamarine.

Aquamarine is the traditional birthstones for March. As a gift, aquamarine is well known for its legendary abilities to preserve and enhance mutual love, to ensure truth in relationships and to maintain a good marriage. It is a universal symbol of youth, fidelity, hope and health and also symbolizes safety and security, especially within long standing relationships. The healing powers of the aquamarine has been mentioned for centuries by healers, shamans and medicine men. Whether it’s factual or a placebo effect, it truly doesn’t matter as long as it helps people who need it. The safest approach is to wear the gemstone in contact with the skin, especially close to the injured or troubled part of the body. Aquamarine is said to be of help for arthritis, eye inflammation and sore throat.

Ancient Romans believed the magnificent gemstone was sacred to Neptune, the god of the sea. Some legends say that it was gift from mermaids, while others suggest that Neptune retrieved it after it fell from the jewel boxes of sirens and washed onto shore. Early sailors wore aquamarine talismans, engraved with the likeness of Neptune, as protection against dangers at sea. The association with water led to the belief that the Aquamarine was particularly powerful when immersed. Water in which this gemstone had been submerged was used in ancient times to heal a variety of illnesses of the heart, liver, stomach, mouth and throat. Aquamarine is believed to release anger and negativity replacing them with mental peace and clarity, providing emotional and mental balance. It has been used as an aid in meditation and to assist in self-expression. In Antiquity, as well as in the Middle Ages people believed that the cosmos is reflected in gemstones. It is no surprise that aquamarine is assigned to the planet Neptune and is also one of March’s official birthstones.
