Looking at aquamarine, it is hard to argue the accuracy of its name; first documented around 480-300 BC, it derives from two latin words: ‘aqua’, meaning ‘water, and ‘marina’, meaning ‘belonging to the sea’. People of ancient Greece and Rome believed the pale blue stone could calm waves and keep sailors safe – engraved aquamarine amulets were used as a means of protection against perils of the sea.
