March 2021-Aquamarine and locations
#DGJ When it comes to certain areas of the world, there are some extraordinary locations that
produce stunning gemstones. Brazil, the East coast of Africa, the island of Madagascar (was
part of African continent), the island of Sri Lanka (the jewel box of the Indian Ocean). These
areas produce not just one beautiful gemstone, but multiple gemstones! Africa produces
diamonds, Tanzanite, Emerald, Amethyst, Garnet. Madagascar produces Ruby, Emerald,
Sapphire, Garnet, and Tourmaline.(The island can be seen from space as having a red ring
around it!). Sri Lanka produces Sapphire, fancy color Sapphires, Ruby, Tourmaline, Spinel.
Brazil produces Beryl (Aquamarine) Quartz(citrine); Topaz, Tourmaline (the most important
color neon Paraiba blue)
 
So, just like clothing brands, you will see and hear the best of the best gems described by their
location, then the gem, e.g. Namibian Emerald, African Amethyst, Madagascan Ruby, Sri
Lankan Sapphire, and Brazilian Aquamarine, Paraiba Tourmaline and one location I haven’t
touched on, Burmese Ruby.
 
March babies have a beautiful blue-green gemstone in the Beryl species, the variety
Aquamarine. The secondary birthstone for March is called Bloodstone, also known as
heliotrope, it is a dark green Jasper with red iron oxide inclusions that look like spots.
