March has two unique and lovely birthstones: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

If you celebrate your birthday in March, you are blessed with two lovely and mysterious birthstones: aquamarine and bloodstone.

I love the idea of birthstones.

The belief that there is a special gem for each month that is special for it is ancient: from the Native Americans to the Bible.

Crystal healers believe that both gems preserve the health of the wearer, as different as they are.

Aquamarine Lovely Blue Birthstone of March is a gorgeous clear blue. This jewel is associated with mermaids!

Bloodstone Mysterious March Birthstone is actually a green stone with red specks or veins. This stone has a very deep significance for Christians. The legend was the stone fell as the tears and blood of Christ fell on the green Earth at the Crucifixion.

Even though they are beautiful, March’s birthstones are economical. Giving a jewelry gift with March birthstones – to yourself or others is a perfect way to celebrate a March birthday.

You can choose between aquamarine or bloodstone if you are looking for March birthstone jewelry.

Both birthstones have special attributes: both are beautiful in their own way. And both birthstones have a long history, full of legends.

I particularly enjoyed finding this Bloodstone and Aquamarine Ring that features both birthstones.

In any case you will find beauty and mystery in the beautiful birthstones of bloodstone and aquamarine.

Aquamarine

Aquamarine : Ocean Blue gem that is the Mermaid’s Favorite

Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family, like May’s birthstone emerald. Beryl crystals are colorless, but the impurities make the unique colors.

For aquamarine, it is pure blue – with very little yellow in a good stone.

Crystal healers believe aquamarine aquamarine birthstone jewelry heals the emotions since it is associated with water.

In ancient beliefs Water rules emotions. The Water signs of the zodiac like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are known to be very emotional.

Aquamarine birthstone jewelry washes away the storms of emotions.
And aquamarine protects those who ride the waves: sailors. In fact by legend, aquamarine was created to please the mermaids.

This March birthstone is especially helpful if you are dealing with grief or loss.
The watery blue-green color means that it is associated with both the heart chakra with the blue color and the throat chakra or thymus because of the green color.

This jewel is associated with communication in a very big way: both spiritual and human communication. Aquamarine is associated with happy marriage! Thus it is actually a perfect wedding ring stone.

Aquamarine clears the mind and balances the emotions while strengthening personal power

Bloodstone Mystery

Bloodstone: the Mysterious Deep Green and Red Bloodstone of March

Bloodstone is actually primarily a very deep green Actinolite crystal , with the “blood” color being the red specks that are iron oxides. It is also known as “hematite” as a nod to the blood part of the stone.

This gem also has a very deep history, and is revered by many cultures.

It is also known as “heliotrope” which means “setting sun”.

It was believed to be strong, and protective: clearing with the blood.

This stone was known from ancient people from the Egyptians who used it to guard the dead in their tombs, to the Greeks who wore bloodstones into battle to protect them.

Medieval Christians had deep reverence for this gem. They believed it was formed from the blood of Christ that dropped onto the green Earth.
