With its serene blue hues reminiscent of tropical ocean waters, Aquamarine stands as the captivating birthstone for individuals born in the month of March. In Latin terms, the word aqua translates to water, while marine refers to the sea. Beyond its aesthetic allure, aquamarine is deeply connected to various symbolic meanings, making it a meaningful choice for those celebrating their birthdays in March. In this journal, we explore its characteristics and the exquisite collection of aquamarine pieces on offer at Hogans Family Jewellers.

Typically aquamarine deposits are mined in Brazil, however, they have been known to come from areas located in Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan, and Mozambique. Coming from the beryl family, this stone is known to be semi-precious and forms in large crystals, making it ideal for larger cut gemstones. With a rating of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness, aquamarine is softer than precious gemstones such as diamonds or sapphires and is typically reserved for dress pieces that are worn for special occasions. A versatile gem, cutters can cut them into almost any shape however it is most common to find emerald, round, or oval cut aquamarines.
