This sparkly Aquamarine has taken my heart. An even medium-light blue color combined with the flashy reflection pattern of the Asscher cut, come together to make an exceptionally beautiful gemstone.
Because of the shape of rough and Aquamarine's natural RI, I decided to cut it in a classic Asscher cut.
This Aquamarine is internally flawless.
Beryls come in many colors and a few recognizable names. Belonging to this family are Morganite (pink to orange), Heliodore (yellow), Aquamarine (greenish-blue to blue), and even Emerald (green)! It's actually the trace elements inside the Beryl that gives it its color. In Emerald, trace elements of chromium give it its unique 'Emerald Green' color, while iron makes Aquamarine the well known greenish-blue. Beryl is a 7.5-8 on the Mohs Scale of hardness and should be treated with care if wearing in a ring.
