Aquamarine JewelryAre you a lover of all things related to the sea? Is someone you know always daydreaming about the ocean? Do you or a loved one prefer nature inspired jewelry? If you answered yes to any of these questions, we have the perfect gemstone for you! Derived from the Latin word for seawater, aquamarine is a splendid blue gemstone. Aquamarine’s breathtaking blue color ranges from pale, light blue to a medium-dark blue. Some aquamarines are near colorless while others are extremely vivid. The most desirable shade of aquamarine gemstone is dark blue with a slight hint of green. However, lighter variations of aquamarine are more common, and more affordable.
- Chatoyancy- also referred to as the cat’s eye effect, this occurs when dense inclusions of tiny, parallel, slender fibers cause a line of light to go through the gemstone, like the slit appearance of a cat’s eye.
- Asterism- this effect reflects a star-like formation of concentrated light which moves around when rotated. Asterism is also caused by dense inclusions of tiny, parallel, slender fibers which cause light to reflect in such an interesting manner. Depending on the size and facets of the aquamarine, asterism displayed may be four, six, and sometimes twelve rayed “stars.”
