What is the difference between turquoises and aquamarines ?
Aquamarines are often listed as "turquoises" online. Even if they have a close colour, they are not the same mineral. Turquoise is a phosphate of copper and aluminium while aquamarine is a silicate. Aquamarines are clear (it is a crystal), while turquoise is an opaque rock. Aquamarine is also harder than turquoise. Both are very interesting to collect.
