Of all the precious gems and stones that can be made into a cherished piece of jewelry, there's nothing as calming and yet still enchantingly beautiful as Aquamarine. Aquamarine earrings make a beautiful adornment to any set of ears, and the color is simply captivating, putting you in the mind of a calm blue ocean. Aquamarine can be found at many sites all over the world, and while its coloring traditionally associates it with the ocean, it can even be found on mountains, as well as the bottom of the sea.
For such a durable material, aquamarine can be surprisingly delicate, and some types of aquamarine stones that can be found on the ocean floor need to stay there to retain their distinctive color, since when they're brought out of the water and into sunlight, they fade to white. That's not anything to worry about when it comes to jewelry, since your aquamarine earrings will stay as beautiful and vibrant as the day they were mined. Different shades of the stone originate from different parts of the world, and the bluish-green aquamarine that we all know and love primarily comes from mines in North and South America.
The aquamarine stone has long been associated with certain mystical beliefs, and it's thought that the stone brings courage and bravery to those who wear it, so if you're ever faced with a confronting situation, then your luminous aquamarine earrings might give you an added internal strength to get through it. It's no wonder that aquamarine is often called the stone of empowerment- although this feeling of empowerment might come from an enchantment of just how good the stone looks when worn.
