Aquamarine

Mohs Hardness: 7.5-8
Specific Gravity: 2.68-2.90
Reflective Index: 1.577-1.583

Aquamarine, a member of the beryl family, gets its name from 
two Latin words which mean "sea" and "water." This lovely 
blue gem has been popular since 400 B.C. 

Lore: Ancient Greeks believed aquamarine held the essence and
spirit of the sea. Wearing this stone was said to protect one
from adversities at sea, prevent sea sickness, and provide 
courage and a strong will. To Christians aquamarine symbolized
harmony, happiness, childhood innocence, youthfulness, and 
purity.
