Large and chunky aquamarine pendant featuring a gorgeous polished cabochon mounted in fine sterling silver. Aquamarine is the blue variety of the mineral beryl whose colour is caused by impurities of iron. Shades of colour in aquamarine can vary from pale green to light blue but the light blue translucent stones which look very similar to topaz have almost always been heat treated.
The crystallisation in this aquamarine cabochon can be seen if you look carefully and as light reflects off the crystals, minute specs of colour can also be seen. It's a particularly impressive stone and one that will really be appreciated by those who are drawn to natural rocks and minerals.
Aquamarine is the modern birthstone for March and whilst Bloodstone and Jasper may be used as alternatives, they are not as popular.
