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. With its transparent blue or blue-green hue, this gemstone belongs to the beryl family and owes its color to trace amounts of iron within its crystal structure. Beryl, occurring in various colors, is famously known as emerald when green. While the rarer transparent varieties like aquamarines are highly sought-after as precious gemstones, more common types serve as a vital source of beryllium metal used in industrial alloys. The main hub for aquamarine production is Brazil; however, these enchanting crystals can also be found in Pakistan and the USA. This image perfectly captures the geological essence of aquamarines with their stunning transparency and vibrant blue shade. As a mineral specimen, it exemplifies nature's artistry at its finest.
