Aquamarine, like emerald, is a form of beryl (Be3Al2(Si O3)6). As you might guess from its name, aquamarine has always had a connection with the sea. In ancient times, sailors wore it for protection. The Romans also felt it promoted friendship, and a piece of aquamarine with a frog carved into it was a token of friendship. In fact, this was such a powerful talisman that giving an aquamarine frog to an enemy was supposed to turn that person into a friend. Aquamarine was also supposed to rejuvenate marriages, making old love new again. On a less lofty note, it also relieved belching and yawning (though come to think of it, that alone might save more than a few marriages.) Its protective side extends beyond sailing, defending warriors in battle, and helping innocent people stand up against malicious litigation. But at its heart, aquamarine will always be a sea-loving stone, and there are even stories of using it to attract mermaids.
Safety note: Since aquamarine contains aluminum, please don’t use it for making elixirs.
