Gemstone: Aquamarine

AQUAMARINE

The name aquamarine comes from Latin, meaning seawater, and was said to calm the waves and protect distant sailors. Aquamarine was also believed to be a blessing, similar to a pager for your relationship. The best gemstones consolidate to get transparency, clarity and a great shape, and from bluish to slightly greenish blue. Like other beryllium stones, aquamarine crystal structures are huge, suitable for the manufacture of large gems and carvings.

This charming and valuable stone acquires its shade from the small quantities of black iron. Its tonal range can range from slightly blue to green, bluish green, teal to dark blue, and its tones can vary from exceptionally light to slightly pale. From time to time you will see aquamarines darker than a Swiss blue topaz. At the time you do find this rare stone, a proper cut can usually greatly improve the shade.

Because aquamarine is available in huge sizes, the price of giant stones is not constantly increasing per carat. In fact, more than 25 carats of cut aquamarine will cost less per carat than more modest stones of similar quality. The implementation and wear of stones of this size can be frustrating, so there is less interest in them.

The beryl family, including the greenish-blue color, is probably one of the easiest gemstones to clean. “Jewel clean”  is the most widely accepted strategy. The highest level of purity can give a light aquamarine such an extraordinary shine that they can be confused with gemstones with a higher refractive index (RI). Indeed, even with an average luminosity scatter of 0.014, stones with high crown points will show their extraterrestrial tones well. This creates an exceptional gemstone.

While the most prominent features depend on more extravagant shades, a light greenish-blue color may be one of the most dynamic aquamarine cutting options on the planet.
