the classic sea-blue color
Aquamarine is the classic sea-blue member of the Beryl family. It comes in a range of colors from light pastel color to a stronger blue which is rare.
Aquamarines are typically heated to reduce the green component and enhance the blue color. However, natural untreated stones with a greenish tinge are becoming increasingly popular and we have several available (see product labelling on each gem).
The Beryl family comes in many colors – blue (Aquamarine), green (Emerald), peach-pink (Morganite), yellow (Heliodor), colorless (White Beryl/Goshenite) and red (Bixbite from Utah).
Aquamarine is a durable gemstone with a hardness of 7.5-8.0 on the Mohs Scale and can easily be used in all types of jewelry. It is the birthstone for March and celebrates the 19th Anniversary.
We have many more shapes and sizes available in Aquamarine – please contact us if you don’t find what you are looking for in our online inventory.
