Aquamarine History

Named for the Latin term for sea water, aquamarine has been credited with providing courage, curing laziness and quickening the intellect. In the Middle Ages it was believed to give the wearer both insight, foresight and freedom from insomnia. Among various peoples, it had the reputation of providing happiness and everlasting youth. Water in which an aquamarine had been soaked was believed to cure eye troubles and stop hiccups.

Legends say that it is the treasure of mermaids, with the power to keep sailors safe at sea. Aquamarine is said to be a particularly strong charm when immersed in water, which may explain why sailors took to them so faithfully on rough seas.

Aquamarine was also said to have a positive influence on love realtionships, especially married couples, by smoothing out differences. This may have led to its popularity as an anniversary gift. Aquamarines are also cited in modern "gem therapy" as a cure for headaches and a talisman for attracting new friends.

The largest known aquamarine was found in Brazil in 1920. It was 19 inches long, 16 inches wide and weighed 243 pounds, but was subsequently cleaved into many smaller gemstones. A green 13-pound uncut piece of the outer portion of the crystal resides in the American Museum of Natural History. The British Museum of Natural History owns an 879.5 carat flawless, step-cut aquamarine with a lovely sea-green color. It is much easier to find large gem quality pieces of aquamarine than emerald.
