With so many possibilities available for showing off this meaningful gemstone, let’s dive into the world of Aquamarine.

Throughout history, Aquamarine has been cherished for its soothing properties and association with the sea. In fact, Aquamarine gets its name from the Latin word for seawater. 

 The ancient Greeks believed it to be the treasure of mermaids, while sailors carried it as a talisman for safe passage across the seas. Today, Aquamarine resonates with purity, tranquility, and eternal youth. It continues to captivate with its calming energy, making it a popular choice for both everyday wear and special occasions.

Caring for your Aquamarine stone jewelry

Aquamarine is a member of the beryl species mostly found in the high elevations of Pakistan’s Karakoram Mountains. Rough Aquamarine crystals can grow easily in large sizes, which ideally displays quality and clarity. The most intense light blue to blue green hues are seen in larger gemstones. 


Aquamarine, like other beryl gemstones, has a 7.5–8 rating on the Mohs hardness scale and a toughness rating of good. While durable enough for daily wear and stable enough to retain its color after years of exposure to light, heat and chemicals should be avoided to prevent damage to the stone or altering the color.
