How to handle milky aquamarine

Aquamarine is a stone with high hardness, so it is hard to get scratched.

However, since milky aquamarine contains many inclusions, it is vulnerable to shocks.

Although there is no problem with normal use, please be aware that if you treat it in the same way as aquamarine, it may become chipped or scratched.

Aquamarine also contains iron, so it is sensitive to sweat (salt) and direct sunlight.

If care is not taken, the blue color will fade from the areas where sweat has adhered, and if it is exposed to direct sunlight, it will cause a chemical reaction with iron and deteriorate.

After wearing, please take care of it on a daily basis, such as wiping off sweat and storing it in a place out of direct sunlight.
