March birthstone

March birthstone

The month of March is unique because two different gemstones are regarded as March birthstone. All other months have one particular gemstone associated with it. The two gemstones associated with March are aquamarine and bloodstone. The common thread between these two stones is that they are both associated with good health for the wearer.

Let us look at both stones one by one. Aquamarine has been found to help the wearer keep a cool head in all kinds of situations. The name itself suggests the color and appearance of this gemstone, which is a soothing blue. In the field of tarot cards and meditation, aquamarine is believed to have healing properties for mental health. It was looked upon in earlier times as a stone that could help resolve differences between friends. It was also gifted to the bride to ensure a long lasting marriage full of sympathy and love. Aquamarine has been found in several countries across the world, including Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia and Mozambique. Aquamarine shares a common ancestry and composition with another beautiful gemstone called emerald. They both have their roots to the mineral named beryl.

The second gemstone associated with the month of March as a birthstone is blood-stone. Although the name of this gemstone contains the word blood, it is actually a stone with base color green. The reason for the ‘blood’ in the name could be the red spots found in this gemstone. Some blood-stones have an opaque look but hardly any red spots, whereas the blood spots are found in the stones which have a transparent green color. This stone too is believed to have healing powers, and some cultures went so far as to ascribe magical powers to this stone. Aside from being worn on the fingers, the blood-stone is sometimes used in signet rings and other jewelry, or embossed in statues or cutlery. This gemstone is made from a quartz called chalcedony.
