Sunday Brunch: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

March 14, 2021
Dear friends,

This week we are looking at the March birthstone: aquamarines! Like emeralds, aquamarines are part of the beryl family and come in a variety of blues and light blue-greens reminiscent of water. Hence their rather nautical name! They are rumored to calm the sea, heal ailments, and grant happiness to newlyweds. In today's newsletter, we have a collection of both aquamarines and "aquamarine" to share with you, along with a selection of a lesser known March birthstone; bloodstones!
