Aquamarine is birthstone for people born in the month of March. It is renowned for its pure ocean blue colour which ranges from blue to a combination of blue-green shade. Beryl gemstones usually possess different range of colour shades. Blue shade gemstone from beryl family is called aquamarine, green is called emerald and pink being Morganite. Despite having a hardness of 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale, aquamarine is heated to dissolve the greenish tinge. This process leaves a pure blue shade which bears quite an opposite result when compared to ruby and sapphire where heat treated actually enhances the colour and clarity. Heat treatment of aquamarine is similar to the heating process of tanzanite where unwanted colour is removed from the gemstone.
