Aquamarine: a classic in jewelry
Along with Ruby, Emerald, Sapphire and Diamond, it is the most demanded gemstone in the jewelry market. Despite the fact that the Aquamarine and the Emerald are both part of the beryl group, they are two gems that look surprisingly dissimilar. The difference in colors being linked to their chemical compositions, Chromium and / or Vanadium in Emeralds and Iron in Aquamarines and colorless Beryls (Goshenite). The other notable difference between these two varieties of beryl is that the emerald is a stone frequently containing inclusions visible to the naked eye, whereas aquamarines are usually very transparent stones, of great clarity, the stones with clearly visible inclusions appearing as curiosities / rarities.

Apart from the traditionally known shades of blue: blue, blue-green, light blue, deposits were discovered in Brazil in 1954, producing intense dark blue aquamarines in the State of Minas Gerais and in the eponymous city of Santa Maria de Itabira. More recently as the epithet indicates, aquamarine Santa Maria deposits have been found in Africa, Madagascar, Namibia, Kenya and Nigeria. The Santa Maria Africana aquamarine is a precious stone much sought after by aficionados and jewelers in search of rarity and originality. The samples extracted from the mines are small and those of intense blue color, are always of very small caliber, rarely exceeding 2 carats.
