During November I was taking part in Huevember. Every day I posted a drawing based on a hue, but I decided to draw 30 mermaid in different hues. She is number 23Inspiration
This mermaid was inspired by the beautiful minerl aquamarine ( here is a photo of one goo.gl/images/tkjbWH
Aquamarine (from Latin: aqua marina, being, water : sea, i.e. sea water,marīna, from marīnus; of the sea.) is a blue or cyan variety of beryl (which is on of my favorite mineral). The deep blue version of aquamarine is called maxixe. The pale blue color of aquamarine is attributed to Fe2+. Fe3+ ions produce golden-yellow color, and when both Fe2+ and Fe3+ are present, the color is a darker blue as in maxixe.
Aquamarine can form in stunning flawless crystals, creating some of the most beautiful mineral masterpieces (Often as perfect, six-sided hexagons, and usually in individual prismatic crystals) (I put a picture of them in my story highlight if you are interested)
Aquamarine is known as the gem of the sea, it was believed to keep sailors safe and guard against storms. Since the ancient Romans believed that aquamarine was sacred to Neptune, god of the sea, Roman sailors would throw their aquamarine treasures into the water so that they would be protected against any potential dangers while at sea.Media
