Aquamarine - March Birthstone Jewelry | freeRange JEWELS

In the late 1980's, an exceptionally large aquamarine crystal was found by three miners in Brazil. The prospectors accidentally dropped the meter-long aquamarine, breaking it into three pieces. A Brazilian buyer purchased the fragmented pieces. The finest and largest piece was saved and transformed into what is now known as the Dom Pedro Aquamarine.

The Washington's Museum of Natural History is the new home of the Dom Pedro - the world's largest aquamarine gem, cut from what was believed to have been the largest gem-quality crystal ever found.
