The word aquamarine comes from the latin words aqua marina, meaning water of the sea. The blue / turquoise color of the gemstone is reminiscent of the calm waters of the seas. There are variations of the aquamarine gemstone that differ somewhat in color and texture. For instance, some of these include the aquamarine chrysolite from Brazil, the maxixe, which is a deep blue version of the stone, from Madagascar. In the maxixe aquamarine, its color can actually fade away if the stone is exposed to sunlight, but it can return through the process of irradiation. Although aquamarine can be found across the globe, there are some deposits very close to home in the United States. Such deposits can be found at Mt. Antero in Colorado, Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming, and a bunch others. Interestingly, the actual mineral from which aquamarine is derived is called beryl. Emerald is also derived from this mineral, as are goshenite, morganite, and red beryl. In ancient times, it was believed that aquamarine would protect all who traveled by water or near water. It was also considered a stone of eternal youth and happiness. Aquamarines, in addition to other gemstones, can be described by their hue, tone, and saturation. Hue refers to the first impression of the color. Tone is the lightness/darkness of the color. Saturation refers to the intensity of the color and the range varies from dull to strong vivid. The aquamarine is the birthstone of March as well a gemstone for the 19th
