From the light blue of the sky to the deep blue of the sea, aquamarines shine over an extraordinarily beautiful range of mainly light blue colours. Aquamarine is a fascinatingly beautiful gemstone. Women the world over love it for its fine blue shades which can complement almost any skin or eye colour, and creative gemstone designers are inspired by it as they are by hardly any other gem, which enables them to create new artistic cuts again and again.
Aquamarine belongs to the Beryl group of gems, and it is so named because of its sea water colour. (Latin- Water of the sea).
Aquamarine was used as a talisman for sailors. A dark blue is the most desired of colours. Improving the quality of gemstones by treating them is common practice. Some treatments are used in almost all cases and are therefore considered acceptable. Treatments of gemstones should be declared by the seller at all times. Aquamarine is the birthstone associated with March. It is also the gemstone for the 19th Anniversary.
