This month's birthstone is Aquamarine, from Latin meaning 'water of the sea'. It is so named because of it's sea water colour. It's pale blue colouring is a result of the Iron content, and is a variety of Beryl. Aquamarine deposits are mainly found in Brazil and Russia, with the largest aquamarine found in Marambaia, Brazil, in 1910, weighing over 110 kg!
