Aquamarine belongs to the Beryl mineral family. It is mainly found in areas with mountains. The process begins in mineral-rich pegmatites and hydrothermal carbonate veins where the composition gets heated up due to magma. This heating causes a chemical reaction in the mineral and when it cools the crystals begin to form in the cavities. A slow cooling process is vital because these gemstones need a longer time to crystalize. The blue coloring is caused due to traces of iron. Beryl on it’s own is a clear color, and the mineral inclusions can cause a variety of colors.
Aquamarine has a silicate structure. It’s a really durable crystal with a 7.5 to 8 score on the Mohs scale of hardness. This stone also has a conchoidal fracture when the mineral breaks.
Aquamarine’s name comes from the same Latin words which translate to “water of the sea”. This phrasing perfectly resembles the crystal’s blue colored exterior.
Where is Aquamarine Found?
Aquamarine is found all over the world in places like the Midwestern part of the United States, Australia and across Africa in countries like Kenya, Madagascar, Namibia and many others. The largest deposits are currently located in Brazil, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Siberia.
