Aquamarine is a famous sea-colored precious stone has long been sought after to fill the true-blue spectrum in the gem world as an alternative to the harder and pricier sapphire. Deep blues are hard to come by, but do hail recently from Madagascar, Vietnam, and Mozambique. Other major Aquamarine specimen deposits of note are Pakistan, Namibia, and Brazil. While always found in the market, truly top quality colored fine aquamarine is scarce.
Pakistan boasts a rich array of minerals, many of which have yet to be uncovered. High in the Himalayas, miners attempt insane mountaineering to get to gem pegmatites. Known worldwide first and foremost for stunning Aquamarine specimens, Pakistan regularly surprises the mineral community with combo minerals and new finds all the time. It also hosts a large amount of the pegmatite minerals that are found in Afghanistan, as many of these finds cross the border.
