Composition:  Aquamarine is composed of beryllium aluminum silicate (beryl).  Aquamarine comes in various shades such as pale blue, yellow, green and brown.

Legend:  Legends refer to aquamarine as the treasure of Atlantis.  Aquamarine does seem to have captured the lucid blue of the oceans. No wonder, when you consider that it originated in the treasure chests of Atlantis.

Lore:  Aquamarine’s name is derived from the Latin word ‘aqua’ (water) and ‘mare’ (sea). It is said that aquamarine strengths are developed to their best advantage when it is placed in water, and so thought to protect sailors and ships.  It’s easy to understand why ancient sailors believed aquamarines could keep them safe at sea.
