Gemstone Facts: Aquamarine belongs to the Beryl gemstone family (blue Beryl) with Beryllium Aluminum Silicate chemical composition . Aquamarine is Latin for water of the sea and it is named because of its sea water color (aqua Latin for water and mare Latin for sea). According to legend the aquamarine originated in the treasure chest of mermaids, and has, since ancient times, been regarded as the sailors’ lucky stone. Aquamarines were believed to calm the ocean, keep sailors safe at sea and prevent seasickness.
Rose Quartz is a type of Quartz which exhibits a pale pink to rose red hue. The color is usually considered as due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese, in the material. Some Rose Quartz contains microscopic rutile needles which produce an asterism in transmitted light. Recent X-ray diffraction studies suggest that the color is due to thin microscopic fibers of possibly dumortierite within the Quartz.
