Aquamarine crystal

Aquamarine crystal. Aquamarine is a transparent blue or blue-green variety of beryl (beryllium aluminium silicate). The colour is due to trace amounts of iron within the crystal structure. Beryl occurs in many colours; green beryl is termed emerald. The rare, transparent beryl varieties are used as gemstones, while the more common types form the principal ore of the metal beryllium, which is widely used in industrial alloys. The main producer of aquamarines is Brazil. They are also found in Pakistan and the USA

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the mesmerizing beauty of an Aquamarine crystal, a transparent gemstone renowned for its stunning blue or blue-green hue. The alluring coloration is attributed to the presence of trace amounts of iron within the crystal structure. Beryl, the mineral family to which Aquamarine belongs, exhibits various colors with green beryl being famously known as emerald. While rare and precious beryl varieties like Aquamarine are cherished as gemstones, more common types serve as vital ores for beryllium metal used extensively in industrial alloys. Brazil stands out as the primary producer of these enchanting aquamarines; however, they can also be found in Pakistan and the USA. The photograph perfectly captures this geological wonder that has fascinated humans for centuries. Its transparency allows us to marvel at its flawless composition while appreciating its unique characteristics shaped by Earth's natural forces. As we gaze upon this exquisite gemstone through Science Photo Library's lens, we are reminded of nature's ability to create breathtaking treasures hidden beneath our planet's surface.
