Precious gemstones like aquamarine are often valued on their identifying characteristics. As with diamonds, one of aquamarine’s most important factors is clarity. That isn’t to say, however, that inclusions often found in these gems are not a welcome sight. In fact, inclusions are one of its most interesting and most common occurring features. One just needs to learn about aquamarine’s inclusions before visiting Reading jewellery shops to realise what is worthy of collector’s attention. Eye-Clean Aquamarines that are usually cut and faceted are eye-clean. The term eye-clean means that the gem appears to be free of inclusions when viewed in daylight by the naked eye at a relatively short distance. It is, however, almost impossible to find an aquamarine with no inclusions whatsoever as it is often a defining feature. Eye-clean aquamarine are typically used as a centrepiece for jewellery.

For a gemstone that has the same colour as the sea, it’s no wonder that gazing upon an aquamarine brings the same calming effect one can get as if staring at the ocean waves. Jewellers in Reading and Berkshire take a close look at aquamarine as one of the most popular gemstones in the world. Not only has it distinguished itself amongst other jewels because of its blue hue, but also for its qualities that make it the perfect gem for March birthday celebrants and brides. The Sailor’s Stone Derived from the Latin words “aqua” (water) and “mare” (sea), the gemstone was said to have been originated from a treasure chest of fabulous mermaids. Since then, aquamarine has been used as a lucky stone for sailors.
