The Magnificence of the Sea Gemstone: Aquamarine
History of the Sea Blue Gemstone: Aquamarine
Aquamarine: The dazzling blue gemstone is known to be a mythological gemstone and has a great history behind it. Legends say that aquamarine gemstones were washed ashore from a mariner’s treasure chest.
Known as the sailor’s protection against the wrath of the sea, this magical gemstone not only has a great history but is also one of the most beautiful and ancient gemstones that are used in jewelry. Allured by the ancient Greeks and Romans, aquamarine gemstones were always worn as amulets with Intaglio engraving on them. Since then, aquamarine gemstones have been used in modern jewelry, especially in rings and necklaces.
The word "aquamarine" is derived from the Latin language, which means the "color of the sea", due to its pale greenish-blue appearance. This Cyan variety of gemstone comes from the beryl mineral group and has a translucent greenish-blue hue that gives it an ocean-like appearance.
What to look for in an aquamarine ring?
Aquamarines are known for their turquoise hue, and it is a key factor to look at before buying aquamarine jewelry. The blueish hue of the aquamarine will define if the stone is natural. Even experts depend upon the color of the aquamarine to determine its originality. So, before buying aquamarine jewelry, make sure that the gemstone is transparent and inclusion-free to the naked eye.
The iridescence and the adularescent shine are other factors to be considered in aquamarine jewelry. The more reflective the stone is, the higher the quality of the aquamarine. So, next time you buy an aquamarine gemstone jewelry piece, make sure to remember these three factors: a dark-blueish hue; fewer inclusions; and higher reflections under sunlight.
