Aquamarine is a blue variety of Beryl that crystallises in hexagonal columns. The blue hues of this Gem come from minor traces of iron. This Crystal is a very rare and historic Gemstone. This Mineral was first recorded around 400 B.C. in Greece, but it has been used by multiple societies for over 2,000 years. Aquamarine can be found in the United States, Brazil, Australia, and a number of other African countries.
Aquamarine grows in a long Crystal and its inclusions are known as ‘rain like’. Our Chips have been cut to show off these fantastic ‘rain like’ inclusions, giving them an unusual appearance and making them highly eye-catching. Aquamarine tends to have a very light blue colour.
Gemstones with rich blue colour are the most popular and therefore the most valuable. Aquamarines are available in a wide range of sizes, and lapidaries have cut Gems weighing several hundred carats, far too large to be worn or made into Jewellery! Many tonnes of Beryl Crystals have been discovered, but they are never of Gem quality.
The name Aquamarine comes from the Latin word for water – Aqua, and the Latin for the sea – Marina.
Aquamarine is the birthstone of March.
There are many famous Aquamarines – our favourite being Queen Elizabeth’s Aquamarine Tiara. It was commissioned by Her Majesty herself, it started it’s life as a matching Necklace and Earring set which was presented to the Queen in 1953.
