The gem’s most valuable color is a dark blue to slightly greenish blue with good intensity. In general, the purer and more intense the blue color, the more valuable the stone.

Aquamarine is pleochroic, which means it shows different colors in different crystal directions—in the case of aquamarine, one is almost colorless and so the the blue is always the cutting orientation.
In the United States, Aquamarines can be found in central Colorado and in the Big Horn Mountains of Montana.
