overview
When you see the sparkling beauty of an aquamarine, there is little wonder in how it got its name. Aquamarine comes in the blue to slightly greenish hues of seawater. It is fitting that aquamarine is Latin for just that. It is not uncommon for the mineral to collect in large enough amounts to yield gems weighing in at more than 100 carats. The highest quality aquamarine has a high clarity that makes it look like solid seawater. It is truly a beautiful choice for the lover of blue in your life.
