~~~ From the light blue of the sky to the deep blue of the sea, Aquamarine (from Latin: aqua marina, "water of the sea") is a fascinatingly beautiful gemstone. Its color, sometimes bluish green, is caused by iron oxides within the chemical makeup of the stone.
Aquamarine is a blue variety of the mineral Beryl. Other colored Beryl gemstones include Emerald (green), Morganite (pink), and Heliodor (greenish-yellow), Goshenite (clear).
The leading producer of Aquamarines is Brazil, with many other notable occurences worldwide such as Nigeria, Zambia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Afghanistan and Pakistan. ~~~
