This gemstone beauty counted cross stitch pattern entitled Aquamarine designed by Tracey Marvel Kramer showcases this rare gemstone and how it looks on our model, a raven-haired beauty. The aquamarine stone is the birthstone for the month of March and is known for its clear aqua-colored bright blue tones. It takes a lot of refining to get the yellow tones out so you can see the pure ice blueness of it! This stone is usually given to a spouse on a wedding anniversary. According to folklore, the aquamarine was used as a good luck charm and was prized by sailors who wore it on ships to protect themselves from maritime fatalities while at sea. This gemstone is found in Zambia, Nigeria, Mozambique and Madagascar. The symbolic traits associated with aquamarine are peace, love, harmony and balance.
