AQUAMARINE GEMSTONE INFORMATION
Aquamarine is both the birthstone for March and the official gemstone for the 19th wedding anniversary.Aquamarine is mostly found and mined in Brazil and countries that fall along the Mozambique geological belt in Africa, though there are a number of other sources. Darker shades of Aquamarine tend to be cloudier, whereas cleaner stones are often very light in hue. Most Aquamarine gemstones are faceted, but when cabochon cut they can occasionally display chatoyancy.
One of the most sought after of all Aquamarine varieties is from the Espirito Santo region of Brazil. Aquamarine from this region manages to possess a unique and intense brilliance that reflects off the internal facets, and exudes a compelling and extremely rare sparkle that dances throughout the stone. Although it is most famous for its glorious cool blue color, Aquamarine is sometimes found with delicate greenish hues. In recent times, it’s been noted that the bluer the stone is, the more valuable it is (generally speaking). But as recently as the 19th century, it was the sea green colored stones that were sought after by the worlds collectors.
