Aquamarine, like emerald, is a form of beryl (Be3Al2(Si O3)6). As you might guess from its name, aquamarine has always had a connection with the sea. In ancient times, sailors wore it for protection. The Romans also felt it promoted friendship; a piece of aquamarine with a frog carved into it was a token of friendship. In fact, this was such a powerful talisman that giving an aquamarine frog to an enemy was supposed to turn that person into a friend.
Aquamarine was also supposed to rejuvenate marriages, making old love new again. Its protective side extends beyond sailing. It was used to defend warriors in battle, and help innocent people stand up against malicious litigation. At its heart, aquamarine will always be a sea-loving stone, and there are even stories of using it to attract mermaids.
