"Water of the Sea" March Astrology Sign is Pisces Beryl Family • Hardness of 7.5 to 8 • Crystal System Hexagonal Legend has it that the aquamarine is the gemstone of great vision, symbolizing power and wisdom with the ability to see into the future. Because of the association with the sea, many colors are present in aquamarine. It is considered to be a gemstone of purification and cleansing that washes the mind with fresh clear thoughts. Its calming effects make it very popular for meditation and healing fears and phobias. Brazil was the greatest source of aquamarine for many years, yet Africa is also a noted source with large supplies and beautiful examples of aquamarine. Colors are like the ocean, ranging from deep blue to pale blue and even shades of green. The density and color of an aquamarine are influenced by the location from which it is mined. The rare, intense deep blue aquamarine found in the Santa Maria mines of Brazil has dominated the association even though some of the same intensity has been discovered in aquamarines from Mozambique.
