Aquamarine, the March birthstone, is a variety of beryl that is blue to greenish blue in color. Most aquamarine is heat-treated to eliminate green overtones and help intensify its blue color. This treatment is permanent and will not revert. Aquamarine is mined in Brazil, Nigeria, Zambia, Madagascar, the United States, and Russia, and is a durable stone with a hardness rating of 7.5-8. Because aquamarine is durable, it is a great stone for those customers seeking to expand their jewelry collection without taking on stones that require special care. It is cut into faceted stones, cabochons, beads, and carvings, offering an extensive variety of options. Most cleaning methods are safe for aquamarine.
