Aquamarine is a member of the beryl family. It has a hexagonal crystal system and is in the mineral class of ring silicate. It is formed in pegmatites (grained or layered structures) where the magmatic
solution has been enriched with berylium.
Aquamarine gets its blue-green to blue color from traces of iron. It's name comes from the Latin/Italian of aqua marina - seawater. It can be found in the U.S., Mexico, Russia, Brazil and India.
Occasionally, parts of a long crystal are found to be a pale yellow color. This would have been caused from exposure to superheating from a nearby magma source (the same occurrence that can morph Amethyst into Citrine).
