You may sometimes also find aquamarines that are completely clean even when they are examined under a jeweler’s loupe at 10x magnification.
  • The gemstone is given different cuts depending on the rough material and the color. But cutting the gemstone may not be an easy thing, therefore more care needs to be taken and proper shapes should be given. You will also find many faceted aquamarines, since the small facets increase the brilliance of lighter colored stones.
