The origin of the name spinel is unknown. It may be a derivative of the Latin word "spinella" or from a Greek word meaning spark, in reference to the bright red or orange color of some crystals although spinel comes in a vast array of colors.
Since early times, aquamarine has been believed to endow the wearer with foresight, courage, and happiness. It is said to increase intelligence and make one youthful. As a healing stone, it is said to be effective as a treatment for anxiety and in the Middle Ages it was thought that aquamarine would reduce the effect of poisons.
