About Aquamarine: Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family and ranges in color from an almost colorless pale blue to blue-green or teal. Since early times, aquamarine has been believed to endow the wearer with foresight, courage, and happiness. A legend says that sailors wore aquamarine gemstones to keep them safe and prevent seasickness. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.
About Kyanite: The name Kyanite derives from the Greek word kyanos, meaning blue. Kyanite has a deep silvery blue similar to blue sapphire at its best. Kyanite is an interesting gem that was discovered during the nineteenth century. Kyanite is found in mountainous regions in the United States (Montana and North Carolina), Switzerland, Brazil and Myanmar. It was once believed that a kyanite suspended from a human hair could follow the earth's magnetic force. Early travelers sometimes used it as a compass when exploring unknown territories.
