Frequently Asked Questions
Why does aquamarine cost so much more than blue topaz that's almost the same color?

Blue topaz is more common because the color is produced by treating colorless topaz with radiation. Aquamarine is more rare in nature, especially in fine color. Its long history as a gem also adds to its collectability.
