  • Aquamarine gemstones are coveted by women all over the world because of the stone’s beautiful blue color, an airy blue with a dreamy feel!  This stone’s color is cool, calming and acts as a stress reducer.
  • Fluorite:  This mineral is known for its wide range of colors – from blue, purple, green yellow and its’ glassy luster.  Fluorite is known to be the most powerful healing stone, especially for strengthening bone tissue.  It can also bring peace and calm to a troubled mind.
  • Lapis:  This gemstone is named after “lapis”, the Latin word for stone and the Arabic word for blue. In ancient times, Egyptian and Persian royalty wore lapis as an amulet to deter danger. 
  • Turquoise: Turquoise is one of the oldest protective gemstones and has long been known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

Aquamarine, Fluorite, Lapis and Turquoise are very popular color earrings in jewelry stores today, per the Store Manager at Two Birds on Castro Street near 24th Street, San Francisco!
