Description: These Aquamarine facets come in various traditional shapes.
Aquamarine is a blue-green variety of the mineral beryl, which also includes other well-known gemstones like emerald and morganite. The name "aquamarine" comes from the Latin words for "water" and "sea," reflecting its beautiful blue-green color reminiscent of the ocean.
Aquamarine is typically found in Brazil, Madagascar, and other locations around the world. Its color is due to the presence of iron impurities in the crystal structure, which can range from a pale, almost colorless blue to a more intense, deep blue-green hue.
Aquamarine is a popular gemstone for use in jewelry due to its attractive color and durability. It has a hardness of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, which makes it suitable for use in all types of jewelry, including rings, earrings, and pendants.
In addition to its decorative uses, aquamarine is also believed by some to have healing properties. It is said to promote calmness, emotional balance, and clear communication, and to help alleviate stress and anxiety.
