Additional Info

Aquamarine is a blue to blue-green variety of beryl. The name comes from Latin "aqua marina" and means "water of the sea". The most valuable stones are those with the richest color saturation.

Where to buy?
For Aquamarine check what Amazon has to offer. You'll usually find quite a selection from many different vendors. Worth a check. For other high quality gemstones (Rubies, Saphhires, Emeralds) and especially Diamonds, I highly recommend JamesAllen.
