The name aquamarine derives from the latin for “seawater”. A fine aquamarine is a blue to greenish blue and is completely transparent and has high clarity. More commonly the color lacks saturation and is a pale blue. Aquamarine is commonly found in large crystals and so large specimens are readily available. Aquamarine is the featured gem of the Brazilian Prarure, a set of matching aquamarine jewelry worn by Queen Elizabeth.
An unusual variety of aquamarine is the Cat's Eye Aquamarine, that displays a phenomena known as chatoyancy.
Aquamarine is the 19th anniversary gem, and the birthstone for the month of March.
