The Aquamarine

26 Jun

According to legend, in ancient Greek mythology, the wind god Roland prayed to the goddess of marriage Venus to seal his soul in aquamarine, which is the birthstone of people born in March to bless people to find their own love.

As the birthstone of March, aquamarine symbolizes calmness and courage, happiness and longevity. From the appearance, many people mistake aquamarine for sapphire or crystal, but in fact they are completely different categories of gemstones. Aquamarine, like emerald, belongs to the beryl family. Aquamarine is generally light blue, green-blue to blue-green, with fewer inclusions, and the crystals are often hexagonal columns.

The quality of aquamarine is evaluated from the aspects of color, clarity, cut and weight. The best ones are pure color, no gray tone, and rich and bright color. Some aquamarines with directional inclusions can have cat's eye effect or starlight effect after special cutting and grinding. Aquamarine with special optical effects is more expensive. Since aquamarine is generally lighter in color, if it is too small, it cannot show the color well. For the same color, if the gem is large, it will be much better, and the blue tone will be more intense and more collectible.

The main origin of aquamarine is Brazil. The aquamarine particles produced here are complete and pure. The best ones show a bright blue color, which is particularly intoxicating. In addition to Brazil, aquamarine is also produced in Madagascar, Zambia, Nigeria, Mozambique and other places. China's aquamarine production areas are mainly in Xinjiang, Yunnan, Inner Mongolia, Hainan, Sichuan and other places. Among them, the aquamarine produced in Xinjiang and Yunnan has the best quality. Bright colors and friendly prices present the crystal clear and dazzling color of aquamarine in the most beautiful way. When the hot summer comes, the fresh and refined aquamarine is a good choice.
