The name ‘aquamarine’ is derived from the Latin phrase ‘water of the sea’, named for its greenish-blue seawater colour. Most aquamarine comes from Brazil, and according to legends aquamarine symbolises love and loyalty. The presence of iron lends the blue tone to this gem, which is available in a range of blue shades, from pale to a greenish-blue to a dark blue. From time to time extremely large examples can be found, one of the largest being a 110.5 kg crystal found in Brazil in 1910. Jewellery made out of aquamarine demonstrates a contemporary, yet classic look which is perfect for the independent and fashionable modern women.
