Large and chunky aquamarine pendant featuring a gorgeous polished cabochon mounted in a fine sterling silver setting. Aquamarine is a variety of the mineral beryl whose colour is caused by impurities of iron. Shades of colour 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 clearly seen if you look carefully and as light reflects off the crystals, minute specs of colour can be seen. It's a particularly impressive stone and one that will really be appreciated by those who love rocks and minerals.
Aquamarine is the modern birthstone for March and this impressive pendant could make a wonderful gift for someone very special.
