Aquamarine arouses the purity of crystal clear waters, and the excitement and relaxation of the sea. It is believed to be calming, soothing and to inspire truth and trust. In earlier times, aquamarine was believed to be the treasure of mermaids and used by sailors for good luck and protection.

The name aquamarine is derived from the Latin ‘aqua-marinus’, meaning “water of the sea”. It refers to its sparkling ocean-like colour. This transparent blue crystal belongs to the beryl family of minerals. The colours of aquamarine range from a dark blue, slight greenish-blue, greenish-blue strong greenish-blue to a green-blue.

The most valuable aquamarines are dark blue with moderate to strong intensity.

Aquamarines are the birthstone for March and represent the 19th wedding anniversary.

Commercially, the aquamarine competes with treated blue topaz, which is much more affordable for a similar colour.

Reduced deposits of quality coloured gemstones and the demand for specific quality grades has led to the introduction of treatments. It has become common for coloured gemstones to be treated, although some processes are more acceptable than others. Aquamarines are usually heat-treated to enhance their colour.
