Aquamarine gets its name from "aqua" which is a Roman word for water and "mare" which is a word for the sea. This magical blue-green stone represents the powers of water. Sailors long ago wore aquamarine carved to look like Neptune, the god of the sea, for protection. They believed aquamarine stones came from the jewel boxes of sirens and mermaids. Ancient people immersed the aquamarine in water, then drank the water, hoping it would heal problems with their heart, liver, stomach, mouth, or throat or to undo the effects of poison. Others use it for glimpsing into the future. This usually flawless stone symbolizes love and security in long relationships between parents and children and between lovers.
