The very name aquamarine brings to mind the clear blue tint of the sea. Legend says that Neptune, the King of the Sea, gave aquamarine as gifts to mermaids and from then on, it has brought love to all who have owned it. The gem was long thought to have a soothing influence on married couples, making it a good anniversary gift. It is the symbol of youth, hope, health and fidelity. Aquamarines are found in a range of blue shades, from the palest pastel to greenish-blue to a deep blue. They are mined in a number of exotic places including Madagascar, Zambia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Mozambique and Brazil.
