Santa Maria Aquamarine Gemstones

Everyone loves Santa Maria Aquamarine Gems and it is obvious why. The beautiful Aquamarine blue tone gems have a trendy soft pastel blue to a deep blue which is very popular and given  the right cut, the translucency reflects light with the blue hue from many angles within. The santa maria is an origin in Brazil but not all stones from Santa Maria mines are called the Santa Maria Aquamarine. The color of the stone decides whether it is a Santa Maria Aquamarine stone or not.

The legends of Aquamarine Gems 

Aquamarine has its name derived from the Latin word “aqua” for “water” and “marine” for “sea” Many legends regarding the sea have been attached to the gemstone over the years. Believed to be the treasure of mermaids, the Aquamarine gem is said to be especially strong when submerged in water. Sailors were also said to have taken Aquamarine to sea as a lucky charm to protect against shipwreck, and many people today still wear Aquamarine to prevent travel sickness. Also, since early times, the aquamarine meaning is that it has been believed to endow the wearer with foresight, courage, and happiness.

Facts About Santa Maria Aquamarine Gems

The Santa Maria Aquamarine often describes those with a deeper shade of blue than normal. The name is derived from the Santa Maria de Itabira mines of Brazil, where the first such stones were discovered in the 1950s and where deep and vibrant Aquamarines have been found. The gemstone Aquamarine is the March birthstone as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912.

Aquamarine and particularly Santa Maria Aquamarine Gems are a real favorite of many gem collectors worldwide. As a member of the Beryl family, Aquamarine’s characteristic pale blue color is created by the presence of iron. Likewise, all members of the Beryl family obtain their colors by the presence of metallic elements, without which pure Beryl remains colorless. It is 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale of hardness.

Allochromatic Gemstones are gemstones that are colored by nature in this way. The Aquamarine’s beryl brother Morganite is colored by manganese, and its older and nearly equally popular beryl brother Emerald, receives his lush green hue from the presence of chromium, iron and vanadium.

Sourcing Santa Maria Aquamarine Gemstones

The largest source of Santa Maria Aquamarine is found in the state of Minas Gerais in south-east Brazil, but today Africa is becoming a strong rival, with mining activities in countries such as Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria and Tanzania. Aquamarines on the market today are often faceted, but when cut as a cabochon, they may display a cat’s eye effect known as asterism.

Are origins like where Santa Maria Aquamarines are mined, important to the value of Aquamarines?

Per GIA, “Although it’s always interesting to know where a gem was mined, origin isn’t an important factor in an aquamarine’s value. Famous mines are well-regarded because they produce fine quality gems that are valuable (such as the Santa Maria Aquamarine); gems aren’t fine or valuable just because they come from famous mines.”
