So Where Are You From, Aqua?
Like many stones, where an aquamarine is from can speak volumes about it's quality and visual attributes. Aqua used to be a mainstay in the jewelry business, but the sources dried up as these things usually do. Enter Blue Topaz, a comparatively inexpensive gemstone readily available from several sources around the world. Not so fast, pretty blue! You stay put as one of November's birthstones. There's not alot of aquamarine but there is enough that anyone born in March should take their time and find a pretty stone to celebrate their birthday, not settle for a look alike that really doesn't look like an aqua ....once you know your gemstones!
