Asked in Aquamarine
Is aquamarine stone a semiprecious gem stone?
Semiprecious does not mean much. Any stone that is considered of value, but is not diamond, corundum, or emerald, is sometimes called that. Aquamarine is the same mineral as emerald, beryl, but is the color of its name, and it is in general much more affordable although large cut gems may be in the thousands (US dollars). Aquamarine may make large and beautiful crystals, like many beryl minerals.
