What Do Spike Lee, Olivia Wilde & Chuck Norris Have in Common?
Okay so, what do Carrie Underwood, Spike Lee, Olivia Wilde, Fergie, Holly Hunter and Chuck Norris have in common?
All share March birthdays, plus the aquamarine birthstone. Aquamarines are a type of beryl identified by their clear, blue-green color. As you can probably guess, the stone’s name has to do with water. Specifically, it means “water of the sea” from the Latin “aqua marina”, because if the gem doesn’t put you in mind of calm, tropical seas, nothing will.
Nonetheless, the fashion world loves aquamarines. They occur in all different sizes, so they can be cut into an incredible variety of shapes and styles. They’re found all over the world, so they’re affordable. And they complement almost every color, so they’re sure to look stunning on you, no matter what you’re wearing. There are also many beliefs that regard aquamarine as a healing stone for mental afflictions as well as physical.
The stone is considered an “all purpose” healing stone as it treats spiritual and psychological disturbances as well as physiological disorders and disease. It is used spiritually to bring purification to one’s entire being, as it allows the inner self to better pursue one’s Highest Ideals, keeping attachments to the mundane world in perspective. Wearing the stone improves one’s overall sense of well-being. Some suggest that aquamarine is used to treat people for whom procrastination is an affliction. It is believed that one who wears aquamarine has a better ability to think clearly and make quick decisions. In addition, it increases one’s access to courage. And who couldn’t use a little of that? I knew there was a reason Chuck Norris was on the list!
There are so many ways to wear an aquamarine and not just bohemian style—they can be entirely glamorous too. Have fun collecting beautiful gemstones that won’t break the bank. In fact, you’ll find that you like them better than diamonds! (Sometimes :))
