Frequently Asked Questions
Are origins like “Santa Maria” important to the value of aquamarines?

Although it’s always interesting to know where a gem was mined, origin isn’t an important factor in an aquamarine’s value. Famous mines are well-regarded because they produce fine quality gems that are valuable; gems aren’t fine or valuable just because they come from famous mines.
