Aquamarine

Aquamarine literally means seawater (from the Latin). Mariners in the ancient times took aquamarines on their trips and threw them on the sea to satisfy “Poseidon’s (The Sea’s God) frequent ire. The taste for Aquamarine has changed through the years. The variation sea green was very popular in the past. Today consumers look for bluer gemstones, with more saturated tones. The biggest Aquamarine in gem quality ever found came from Minas Gerais, Brazil, weighting 110.5 kg weight. Brazil is one of the world’s largest producers of this gemstone.
