Potted History & Magical Myths:
The name given to this bewitching blue Beryl “Aquamarine” derives from the Latin “Aqua” for water and “Marina” for sea! Apparently, it was used by the Ancient Indians to adorn amulets, by the Egyptians as talismans whilst the Romans and Ancient Greeks gave it to their sailors to ensure safe and prosperous passage, and tame stormy waves! In a quid pro quo it was believed that if they threw their Aquamarines overboard the Mermaids would catch them and keep them in their treasure troves and in turn would calm the gods. Think we all need to go scuba diving for these beauties!!
