Aquamarine from Mt. Antero. Mt. Antero aquamarine
rough is rare and difficult for us to obtain on any consistent basis. Mt.
Antero is the 10th highest peak in Colorado (14, 269 ft.) & the highest known gem producing area in the USA. Virtually all gems and crystals
occur above 11,500 ft. Aquamarine is considered the March birthstone.|
Aquamarine, 7.06 ct
Very rare over 5 carats in good color and relatively clean,
this gem is medium-dark blue. One of the best Antero aquamarines we've ever
had in 40 years of business and collecting! It measures 9.7 x 12.4 mm, and
American cut into a fancy pulsar cut. The pulsar cut maintains the emerald
cut outline while giving much more flash. Fits in most standard emerald cut
heads. If you want a one-of-a-kind piece from Mt. Antero, this one is it!

||Aquamarine, 4.15 ct Portuguese style cushion. 7.8x13.6 mm. |
Has the typical Mt. Antero inclusions, but is top color, even better than
the picture shows. This is the best dark color you can get except for a few
special collector pieces. I was able to buy some pieces off of the
Cardwell's claims on top of the knob/snowpatch area that they mined a couple summers ago. This one
would make an especially nice ring or pendant, and is the best color of any
larger rough stone I was able to purchase.
$1,452.25 (Stock #AQBC-0415)
||Aquamarine, 12.58 ct, scissor cut, 24.7 x 83 mm. Lt. medium to medium color. The largest fine quality stone from Antero that I've ever offered. Rough was found a few years ago by John Melby, who used to prospect with Andy Taylor, both mentioned in Jacobson's Antero book. Both were fine gem cutters, but are both recently deceased. I purchased the rough from his estate.|
Not flawless by any means, but quite clean for the size. Stones of this size from Antero are very rare.
This one is a special piece. $3,145.00. Willing to consider offers.
||Aquamarine, 7.69 ct Portuguese cushion cut, light blue. |
large stone that would make a nice ring or pendant.10.1 x 16.0 mm. Has the
typical flaws/inclusions of Mt. Antero material, but still faces up well.
One flaw about 1/4 way up one longer side could be covered with a designer
prong no doubt. Has more brilliance than the picture shows, I will keep trying to get a

medium color, a few slight flaws
$400.00 (Stock # AQBR-0201)
||Aquamarine, 3.81 ct oval, Portuguese style, 8.7x 11.7 mm. |

you it's priced accordingly. Light blue, good size.

Light blue, but pretty
clean for Antero aquamarine. There is no "hole" in this, good brilliance.

|Please note: Much effort has been made in the attempt to get as accurate a picture as possible of our gemstones. Please keep the following in mind while shopping: Cameras do not see color exactly the same as the human eye and lighting conditions often cause large variances. When taking pictures for the web, we have found that it is very difficult to capture the brilliance that the human eye sees and photos cannot often show all of the stones' ambiance and jewelry pieces' fine detail. Also computer monitors vary and often color tones are set to suit the viewer's preferences. When shopping, remember that "the pictures are meant as a rough guide only."
