This gemstone is named “aquamarine” , derived from the Latin word for seawater. The aquamarine has a deep blue color which reminds us of the sea and watercolors ranging from pale blue to blue-green or teal. Some gemstones are heated to high temperatures to enhance the color and/or clarity of a stone. Aquamarines are no exception. They are often heat-treated to change a blue-green or teal colored stone to a pure blue, a permanent color change. To the untrained eye, blue aquamarine is sometimes mistaken for Blue Topaz.
