What is aquamarine, and where is it typically found?

Aquamarine is a blue-green variety of the mineral beryl. It is found in many countries around the world, including Brazil, Madagascar, Pakistan, and the United States. The largest aquamarine ever found was discovered in Brazil in 1910 and weighed over 110 kg. Aquamarine is often found in granite pegmatites and can also be found in metamorphic rocks. Its distinct blue-green colour comes from the presence of iron in the crystal lattice.

What is the colour of aquamarine, and how does it change depending on the lighting?

Aquamarine is typically a pale blue or blue-green colour, but it can range from almost colourless to a deep blue-green. The colour can vary depending on the lighting conditions. In daylight, the blue-green hues are more noticeable, while under artificial light, the stone may appear more blue or green.

How durable is an aquamarine gemstone for jewellery?

Aquamarine is a relatively hard and durable gemstone, ranking 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs hardness scale. It is suitable for use in most types of jewellery, but care should be taken to avoid exposing the stone to high heat or sudden changes in temperature, which can cause fractures or cracks.

What is the symbolism and meaning behind aquamarine as a gemstone, and how does it relate to its use in jewellery?

Aquamarine is often associated with the sea and is said to have calming and soothing properties. It is also believed to promote courage and communication. Because of its blue-green colour, it is often used to symbolise love, loyalty, and friendship. It is a popular gemstone for use in jewellery given as a gift to loved ones, especially for those born in March as it is the birthstone for that month.

What are some popular gemstone substitutes for aquamarine in jewellery?

Some gemstones that are often used as substitutes for aquamarine in jewellery include blue topaz, blue zircon, and blue sapphire. While these stones may be less expensive than aquamarine, they are not as rare or valuable, and they may not have the same properties or meanings as aquamarine.

What are some popular occasions for gifting aquamarine jewellery?

Aquamarine is the birthstone for March, so it is often given as a gift for birthdays in that month. It is also a popular choice for anniversary gifts, especially for the 19th wedding anniversary. Aquamarine jewellery is often given to signify love, loyalty, and friendship, making it a popular choice for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and other special occasions.

Can I customise my aquamarine jewellery?

Yes, aquamarine jewellery can be customised to suit your preferences and style. You can choose the type of metal, such as yellow gold, white gold, or platinum, as well as the setting style, such as prong, bezel, or channel setting. You can also choose the shape and size of the aquamarine, as well as any additional gemstones or designs to be included in the piece.
