The word “aquamarine” means “seawater” in Latin. The name alone evokes scenes of summer days on the beach, by the sea, in warm sunshine …
Aquamarine is a variety of Beryl with deep blue to slightly greenish-blue colour. Crystals are sometimes big enough to facet gemstones weighing well over 100ct. It is often free from inclusions and as clear as water. This gemstone is mostly found in Brazil and in some areas of Pakistan that are harder to attain.
Aquamarine is a serene stone associated with tranquility, serenity, clarity, and harmony. The sea-blue crystal represents transformation and rebirth and possesses all the healing qualities of the sea, such as stress relief and peace.
It was believed by ancient mariners that the gem would calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. It was also thought to bring happiness in marriage. Aquamarine is the gemstone for the 19th wedding anniversary.
Aquamarine has a hardness of 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale, which makes it durable enough for everyday wear. Clean with warm water and mild soap.
