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.

Aquamarine Properties

  • 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.”
Aquamarine is the birthstone for the month of March as well as the gem to honor 19th wedding anniversaries. According to legend, the aquamarine stone originated in the treasure chest of mermaids, further establishing its association with the ocean. Beautiful aquamarine jewelry creates a mesmerizing touch of sea-inspired beauty. Aquamarine is considered an “all purpose” healing stone that has therapeutic value. It is said to calm nervous tension and increase inner tranquility. Aquamarine jewelry makes a thoughtful gift for a loved one, bringing about an aura of peace all while glistening like the beautiful surface of the sea.
