Mt Antero Aquamarine

If you're into rockhounding and gems, you simply must know about Mt. Antero Aquamarine! Picture this: a soaring peak that reaches more than 14,000 feet into the Colorado sky, home to what you might just call "blue heaven." That's right! Mt. Antero is a mecca for some of the highest quality aquamarine in the United States. These crystals are so lusciously blue that they make the sky look like it needs a color upgrade!

Now, the adventure to get these aquamarine treasures is not for the faint of heart. We're talking rugged terrains, high altitudes, and the elements showing their true colors. But oh, the prize! Imagine pulling a piece of sky-blue aquamarine out of the rock, a gem so brilliant it's like holding a piece of the sky in your hand.

This magical spot has been a gem hunter's dream since the 1800s, and every summer, avid rockhounds make the pilgrimage to try their luck. The aquamarine here often occurs in granite, usually alongside other minerals like smoky quartz and black mica. This makes for not just a single gem but a real ensemble of sparkly goodness!

We got ours directly from the miner so you know its the real deal! 

You don't have to go all the way to Colorado to get a taste of this stunning gem. You can always pop into our store and find some stunning aquamarine pieces that are just begging to be part of your collection! 🌟💙
