Aquamarine

The gemstone has been known to be the best for sailors protecting them against all sorts of mishaps. Because of the serene color that the gemstone has to offer, it promotes calmness and peace in the beholder. The pale cool color of the Aquamarine is perfect for most if not all of your summer or spring wardrobes. While the color is commonly intense in the bigger stones, the greenish blue or the blue green color of the gemstone is usually light in tone. A few of the regions where the stone can be found include Brazil, Pakistan, Madagascar, Nigeria, Zambia and Mozambique.

Bloodstone

It is usually dark green in color primarily but does also have the red spots on it due to the iron oxide deposition. Not only the stone is known to have intense healing powers primarily for blood disorders but it was also used for the purpose of making seals and amulets by Babylonians throughout the history. The bloodstone is also known as the martyr’s stone since it is known to come into existence when a few drops of blood of Christ dropped on a jasper at the foot of the cross during the time of crucifixion. The bloodstone can be found conveniently in an embedded form in riverbeds and rocks in countries like Brazil, India, and Australia.

Now that you are aware of a few of the prominent characteristics that the gemstones of March have to offer you can see that these make the perfect gifts.
