Aquamarine Gemstone Microweave Anklet. These beaded gemstone anklets are unique one-of-a-kind creations. Stylish and durable on their own or stack them with one of our Kauai Puka Shell Anklets for a more complete look. These anklets are made to withstand outdoor activities and are water-friendly. This style is the microweave (smaller 4mm faceted beads) and is more delicate and dainty.
These anklets are a great match for our Puka Shell & Aquamarine Earrings.
To ensure a proper fit, we strongly recommend measuring your actual ankle and ordering a size that will fit as snug as possible, as some stretching/settling (up to 1/8″) will occur. Note: Our microweave bracelets and anklets are smaller and thinner, so they demand greater care to avoid potential damage.
- Small – fits up to an 8.5″ ankle.
- Medium – fits up to a 9.5″ ankle.
- Large – fits up to a 10.5″ ankle.
Please contact us for sizes larger than 10.5″.
Aquamarine (from Latin: aqua marina, “seawater”) is a blue or cyan variety of beryl. It occurs at most localities that yield ordinary beryl. The gem-gravel placer deposits of Sri Lanka contain aquamarine. Green-yellow beryl, such as that occurring in Brazil, is sometimes called chrysolite aquamarine. The deep blue version of aquamarine is called maxixe. Maxixe is commonly found in the country of Madagascar. Its color fades to white when exposed to sunlight or is subjected to heat treatment, though the color returns with irradiation.
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. Another location within the United States is the Sawtooth Range near Stanley, Idaho, although the minerals are within a wilderness area which prevents collecting. In Brazil, there are mines in the states of Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, and Bahia, and minorly in Rio Grande do Norte. The mines of Colombia, Zambia, Madagascar, Malawi, Tanzania, and Kenya also produce aquamarine.
