Aquamarine

Aquamarine Gemstone

One of the better known members of the Beryl family, Aquamarine, originally from the latin term for ‘water of the sea’, is characterized by vivid, beautiful tones of Blue. The most highly prized of the Aquamarine colors is dark Blue, similar to that of the ocean. In the vast majority of cases Aquamarine is enhanced through trade accepted heat treatment to further highlight the Blue color.

Aquamarine is best presented in larger sizes and when cut in styles such as princess, marquise, emerald, and many varieties of fancy cut.

Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March, and can be used as a wedding anniversary stone to celebrate 19 years of marriage.

Aquamarine is the Zodiac stone for both Pisces and Scorpio, and is thought to convey the mythical trait of ‘Unity’.

 

 

The Blue color in Aquamarine comes from the presence of Iron in its chemical composition.

Important locations from which Aquamarine is sourced include Brazil, India, Myanmar, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Madagascar. Blossomjewels typically sources its Aquamarine from Brazil, parts of Africa or Madagascar.

Aquamarine is reasonably hard with a Mohs’ hardness rating in the range of 7.5 to 8/10, so it is reasonably well suited for everyday wear. This being said Aquamarine can be brittle and care must be taken so it is not exposed to the risk of hard knocks.
