Aquamarine is believed to possess many properties, one of which is the ability to bring happiness in marriage. According to ancient mariners, it has the power to calm waves and ensure the safety of sailors at sea. For the past 200 years, the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais has been a prominent source of this gemstone.
