Moss Aquamarine Faceted Teardrop Briolette Beads, Approx 5x4mm To 11x6mm

Moss Aquamarine Faceted Teardrop Briolette Beads, Approx 5x4mm To 11x6mm

These faceted gemstone teardrop briolette beads are truly beautiful, each contains inclusions that present a moss-like appearance, hence their name. The actual name Aquamarine comes from the Latin aqua marinus, meaning "water of the sea," and refers to its sparkling ocean-like colour. Its colour, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides within the makeup of the stone. In ancient lore, Aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and was used by sailors as a talisman of good luck, fearlessness and protection. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Today it protects all who travel by, over or near water.
