Birth Stone for March
Birthstones are gemstones that have been assigned to a particular month. These stones have unique meanings and significance that are said to date back to ancient times.
Although each month is traditionally associated with one gemstone, jewellers today continue to add options to the modern birthstone chart.
March Birthstone - Bloodstone
Traditionally, March’s birthstone is the bloodstone. This dark green gem is flecked with red iron oxide spots--so unexpected and unique!
These stones are typically found embedded in rocks or pebbles. Bloodstones come in many sizes, and their value is decided by their colour and number of spots. The more dark red spots, the higher the value for bloodstone.
Because of their association with blood, bloodstones are supposed to protect the wearer against haemorrhages. They also stand for bravery.
Aquamarine - Birthstone for March
The modern birthstone for March is aquamarine. This gemstone comes in a range of gorgeous sea-like hues.
Due to this stone’s colour and name, this gem is strongly connected to the ocean. It is also known to protect sailors, fishermen and travellers. Perfect for a loved one who adores the water!
Aquamarine is also associated with tranquillity, serenity, hope, and health. With its combination of colours that represent the sky and water, aquamarine symbolises eternal life.
