The quality and colour most sought after for Aquamarine is a strong clear aqua blue.  I love the many variations such as opaque milky colours and particularly the greenish blue colours (That's why I have quite a few available!). You should always choose the colour you are drawn to the most!

Aquamarine is a specific colour of the Beryl mineral.  

Grass green beryl is Emerald and Pink beryl is Morganite.  Light green is simply green Beryl, you can also get yellow Beryl.  You can see where there is overlap between these gemstones!  

Hardness 7.5 - 8 making it quite durable for jewellery.
