< Where Are the Aquamarines?

April 22, 2014

Aquamarines were discovered many many years ago. They pre-date even the Romans, but nobody knows exactly where and when they were first discovered. Nowadays, they are found dotted all around the world, with a few select countries being a favourite host of the Aquamarine in particular.

Around the world 
The fact that Aquamarines are tough, durable and exceptionally beautiful makes them perfect for jewelry. This means we are always on the search for the best looking Aquamarine gemstones. The most famous countries that harbour the finest Aquamarines are Brazil, Sri Lanka, Russia, India, Madagascar and Midwest America.

The biggest of its kind 
The biggest ever Aquamarine of its kind was found in Brazil in 1910. It was so big that it had to be cut into a number of smaller pieces, weighing a total of 100,000 carats. The Aquamarine weighed 243 pounds when it was found and was 18 inches long.
Since then, the search for bigger and more beautiful Aquamarines has continued. We’ve managed to find a few ourselves, and lL Gems offer a wide selection of beautiful gemstones, including favourites like Aquamarines.
