The very name aquamarine brings to mind the limpid, clear blue tint of the sea. Legend says that Neptune, the King of the Sea, gave aquamarine as gifts to the mermaids, and from then on, it has brought love to all who have owned it.
Aquamarines are found in a range of blue shades, from the palest pastel to a clear sea blue. While the choice of color is largely a matter of taste very small stones are often less vivid. The color tones of this popular Beryl are subtle and varied.
The term multi color aqua is used in jewelry trade to refer to the pastel shades of Beryl from ranging from orange to greenish blue including the classic aqua color.
