Aquamarine is derived from the Latin words “aqua marina” meaning “sea water”. It is closely related to emerald, both belonging to the beryl family of minerals. Iron is the substance that gives it its strong colour. It is a hard gemstone with a magnificent shine, although some paler colours have inclusions inside the rock that makes it look less clear. Mainly sourced from Brazil, but found in other countries such as Nigeria, Madagascar, Afghanistan and Pakistan
