Aquamarine is the Birthstone of March
Any March birthdays out there? Of course there are! Every month has its own birthstone, from Christmas-season December babies being donned with the Turquoise birthstone, to start-of-summer June babies boasting stones Pearl and Alexandrite for their months, and beyond! March is the lucky month of the year that gets to claim this beautiful stone for its own!
The gem symbolizes youth, hope, and health, wonderful well-wishes to be bestowed upon anyone who was born into this time of the year. With March welcoming the start of spring, its sky blue color reflects the parting of cloudy winter conditions into clear blue skies perfectly!
Aquamarine is the State Gemstone of Colorado
Since April 30, 1971, Aquamarine has been officially deemed as the state gemstone of the beautiful state of Colorado! Colorado achieved this honor of boasting Aquamarine as its state gemstone by displaying the highest quality of the mineral above any other state.
What’s more, across all of Colorado’s 14-ers (58 to be precise), the highest qualities of aquamarine respectively are those found atop Mount Antero. So when it comes to shopping for Aquamarine products, from skincare to jewelry, you can rest assured that you can and will find the highest quality product at none other than GemClay, mining directly from the top of the Mount Antero! We are honored to mine the state’s representative stone atop its most providential peak, and share it all with you!
