About the stone
Trilobites are one of the most common fossils in the world, they have been found in every continent and thrived in all areas of the planet and in all climates. There are over 20.000 known species of trilobites.
Trilobites first appeared on earth around 540 million years ago. Over the course of its life a trilobite would outgrow many shells, most trilobite fossils are in fact the discarded husks of the trilobite. Specimens that represent the actual creature, as opposed to its shuffled-off shell, are comparatively rare. The trilobite became extinct around 250 million years ago along with 90% of Earths species at the time.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for March and the traditional 19th wedding anniversary stone.
Aquamarine gets its name from the Latin "aqua marina" which means "sea water”.
Aquamarine has been a popular stone for thousands of years, decorative jewellery and amulets using aquamarine have been found that date back to 500 B.C.
Believed to be a precious treasure from mermaids, sailors have worn aquamarine amulets to keep them safe at sea, ward off seasickness, and protect them from Satan. The Romans believed that aquamarines could cure medical problems with the liver, stomach, and throat. Healers used it to reduce fluid retention and to calm the nerves. In the Middle Ages, this gemstone was used to reduce anxiety and the toxicity of poisons. It was also used to protect against gossip!
Nowadays Aquamarine is believed to be the stone of courage. Its calming energies reduce stress and calms the mind. It filters information reaching the brain and clarifies perception, sharpens the intellect, and clears up confusion. It promotes self-expression, soothes fear and increases sensitivity.
