Aquamarine is March’s birthstone and the accepted anniversary gem for the 19th year of marriage.

The ideal color is a refreshing sea blue that is neither too pale or too green. As part of the normal finishing process, most aquas are heated to remove traces of yellow and permanently intensify the blue color.

Aquamarines is found mainly in Brazil, Nigeria and Zambia.
