Known for a deep connection with the Ocean, March Birthstones often represent the colours of water.
Like the Zodiac water sign Pisces (19 February - 19 March) Aquamarine embodies the essence of life-giving, crystal clear water. Available in translucent hues of light and dark blue and the iconic blue-green, Aquamarine is the traditional birthstone for March.
The name Apatite is derived from a Greek word meaning "to deceive" because the variety of colours make it easy to mistake for other minerals. It often comes in blue, green and gold hues. Apatite is not a traditional birthstone, but is said to be a natural birthstone to those born at the beginning of Spring (March) in the Northern Hemisphere.
Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in its volcanic origins. This is the perfect stone to represent both the water zodiac Pisces and the fiery Aries. While Larimar is not a traditional birthstone, it is sometimes referred to as a natural birthstone for Pisces.
Larimar's soft blue is often streaked with white patterns. The most common colours can range from shades of light blue, green blue and deep blue, the perfect reflection of the moving ocean.
Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope, is a secondary birthstone for March babies. The opaque appearance of Bloodstone is often speckled with red, connecting it with the Red Planet; Mars. This earthy grounding stone is said to help calm fiery signs like Aries, yet awakens courage and determination for the Zodiac sign of Pisces.
