About Aquamarine :-Aquamarine’s name comes from the Latin for seawater and it was said to calm waves and keep sailors safe at sea. March’s birthstone was also thought to enhance the happiness of marriages. The best gems combine high clarity with limpid transparency and blue to slightly greenish blue hues. Like many beryls, aquamarine forms large crystals suitable for sizable fashioned gems and carvings. Aquamarines are found in primary (hard rock) and secondary (weathered) pegmatite deposits in the eastern portion of the state, near the gem center of Teófilo Otoni. Aquamarines are surely one of nature's wonders. Stare into one of these beautifully cut, clear gemstones and you are instantly transported to the shores of an idyllic island. Instead of a crystal, you are looking into the transparent waters of the ocean of your dreams.
