THE STORY OF OUR AQUAMARINE
Aquamarine is a blue variety of beryl, its pale blue colour of aquamarine is attributed to Fe2+, which looking a water in lake, in ocean, in rain drop, in snow flake. It is inspiring and comforting at the same time, just like surrounding by a fountain of life.
In ancient Greek and Roman Myths, the origins of Aquamarine came from the treasure chests of mermaids. The god of wind also sealed his soul in Aquamarine, blessing people to find their love.
Its colour can be in-between blue and green on the colour wheel but it can also have a very light colour, close to white/no colour. It can be found and mined from Brazil, Pakistan, India, Africa, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and Xinjiang in China. All of these places have a variety of quality of this gemstone/crystal.
We design and craft jewellery with natural Aquamarine gemstones directly sourced from different parts of the world.
We have been sourcing Aquamarine from Pakistan, Xinjiang, India, Brazil and Africa. Altay Prefecture, Northern Xinjiang is known to supply natural Aquamarine in great fire and brilliance. In Pakistan, we could find more clean Aquamarine crystal closer to cyan colour but there's also a smaller amount of deep blue aquamarine.
