Silver ring with aquamarine light sky color, cubic Zirconia. Origin of the stone-South America.
People have long believed that aquamarine is a precious natural stone of mermaids. Legend has it that aquamarine was first discovered by sailors in a treasure chest owned by a mermaid. Since then, sailors began to take a stone with them on a voyage as a talisman, and the sea mistress became their patroness.
The name of the stone is translated from Latin as "sea water». Aquamarine looks like a frozen piece of the sea. The name "noble beryl" is also applied to the mineral, due to its belonging to this family. The closest relatives of the stone are considered to be sapphire, ruby and emerald. « Similar to the color of ocean waters" — for the first time so described the mineral sage Pliny. Crystals, which are similar in color to the waters of the ocean, he considered more valuable than anything else in the world.
