Aquamarine gems

Aquamarine gems. 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 aquamarine gems. Known for their transparent blue or blue-green hues, these exquisite gemstones are a variety of beryl, specifically beryllium aluminium silicate. The alluring coloration is attributed to trace amounts of iron present within the crystal structure. Beryl occurs in various colors, with green beryl being famously referred to as emerald. However, it is the rare and transparent varieties that are highly sought after as precious gemstones. Meanwhile, more common types of beryl serve as the primary source for extracting beryllium metal used in industrial alloys. Brazil takes center stage as the main producer of aquamarines, but these enchanting gems can also be found in Pakistan and the USA. This stunning photograph captures a selection of cut and polished aquamarine stones, showcasing their transparency and vibrant blue shades against a geological backdrop. As an earth science marvel, aquamarines hold immense value both aesthetically and scientifically. Their allure has been immortalized through this image by Science Photo Library—an ode to nature's artistry carved deep within our planet's crust.
