AQUAMARINE: The lucky gift for travellers. Since ancient times, Aquamarine has been associated with luck, happiness and courage . . primarily for travellers. But it is also believed to have a soothing influence on relationships, especially marriage, and makes an excellent gift for Anniversaries. (It is the traditional gemstone for the 19th Wedding Anniversary, and folklore has it that an Aquamarine is the luckiest charm for a bride, making it the perfect gift for an Engagement.) To many ancient cultures, Aquamarine was also a symbol of happiness, courage and everlasting youth, quickening the intellect, and improving memory. For these reasons it is said to be an effective treatment for anxiety, depression and grief, bringing serenity to the mind to the wearer. People often wear this lucky gemstone to bring good luck in new ventures like a new job, or to try and ensure financial success, because it is said to stimulate creativity and calm, and relax the mind.
