Historically, ancient tales, myths, and legends wind around the eternal April birthstone, the infamous Diamond. As one of the world’s most valuable and ancient stones, although not nearly as rare as commonly believed, the Diamond – “King of Gems”, The Invincibility Stone, and the Forever Stone – is a crystal of Light; flashing prisms of brilliant color and spirituality in our lives.
Saturated in folklore, legend and ancient culture, the soft serene aquamarine stone was hailed as a mighty oracle and protection stone. The name aquamarine is literally translated as ‘sea water’, derived from the Latin words for Aqua (water) and Marina (the sea). In ancient lore, it was believed the serene Caribbean sea-colored stone was actually crystallized sea water, a treasure of mermaids, which invokes the tranquility of the sea.
