Aquamarine captures the beauty of the sea. Neptune, the King of the Sea, gave Aquamarine as his gift to the mermaids, and from then on, it has brought love to all who have owned it. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March, and they can are found in a range of blue shades, from the palest pastel to greenish-blue to a deep rich blue. While the choice of color is largely a matter of taste, the deeper blue gems are more rare. No matter what size, color or shape of Aquamarine you may desire, Elleard Heffern Fine Jewelers will be able to help you obtain the perfect gem.
Aquamarines are mined in a number of exotic places including Nigeria, Madagascar, Zambia, Pakistan and Mozambique, but most of the gemstones available today come from Brazil. Many Aquamarines are greenish when mined and cut. For those who prefer the pure blue, these stones are heated to enhance their blue color permanently. This elegant colored gemstone is the birthstone of March and is a symbol of youth, hope, health and fidelity.
