Aquamarine, as the name suggests, is named after water. When translated aquamarine means 'water of the ocean.' It has been said that the ancient Greeks and Romans believed having an aquamarine aboard a ship would protect sailors at sea.
In the calendar of the zodiac, aquamarine represents the star sign Aries. Aquamarine is part of the beryl gemstone family, to which the beautiful green emerald also belongs. Aquamarine has been thought to encourage long, happy marriages.
