Aquamarine is a gorgeous watery blue variety of beryl, the same mineral class as emerald and morganite. The name aquamarine comes from the Latin "aqua" (water) and "marina" (of the sea). Just like sea water, aquamarines range in blue tones from light to dark. The finest aquamarines have a medium blue tone, but many also love the popular lighter shades. Aquamarine is the birthstone for March.

Emerald is one of the big three colored gemstones, alongside sapphire and ruby. Emeralds come in a variety of green tones ranging from yellowish-green to bluish-green, and often have a satiny "glowing" appearance in the light. Tiny inclusions in the stone actually help create this glowing satin effect. The finest emeralds were historically mined in Colombia, but today many high grade stones are also found in Zambia and Brazil, among other places. Emerald is the birthstone for May.
