Dark blue is the most desired color for aquamarine gemstones, and clearer specimens are often heated or irradiated to attain the desired color.

In the United States, aquamarines can be found at the summit of Mt. Antero in the Sawatch Range in central Colorado. In Wyoming, aquamarine has been discovered in the Big Horn Mountains, near Powder River Pass.
