What is Moss Aquamarine?
This stone is called Moss Aquamarine because, yes you guessed it, hence the name. It is because it contains moss within the stone giving it a light green color. During the formation of the Aquamarine, moss was entrapped within the stone.
Similar situations like this occur naturally like Ametrine, which is Amethyst and Citrine grown together and somehow fused together. That is why you see the yellow and purple in that stone. It is the same situation with Moss Aquamarine. If you look closely at the stone you will be able to see inclusions within the stone that is the moss.
