Aquamarine, 8.35 Carats Top Quality Blue Aquamarine Cabochon
||12 x 10 x 8mm
Aquamarine is one
of our most popular and best-known gemstones, and distinguishes itself
by many good qualities. It is almost as popular as the classics: ruby,
sapphire and emerald. In fact it is related to the emerald, both
belonging to the beryl family. The colour of aquamarine, however, is
usually more even than that of the emerald. Much more often than its
famous green cousin, aquamarine is almost entirely free of inclusions.
The more intense the colour of an aquamarine, the more value is put on
it. Some aquamarines have a light, greenish shimmer; that too is a
typical feature. However, it is a pure, clear blue that continues to
epitomise the aquamarine, because it brings out so well the immaculate
transparency and magnificent shine of this gemstone.
