Aquamarine was a precious stone found mainly in northern Faerûn, and was used as adornment by many barbarian tribes of the region.[1][6]


This gemstone was a transparent form of beryl, blue-green in color. Aquamarine was hard and durable, making it suitable for jewelry worn by active beings.[1][6] A typical specimen had a base value of 500 gp.[1][2][3][4][5]


An aquamarine was a material component in casting an extremely rare and secret spell, Orgonil's ritual, that made an exact copy of another gemstone, regardless of flaws, scratches, or carvings.[6] It was also one of the stones used in creating a necklace of prayer beads,[7] and the primary ingredient in enchanting an aquamarine of spell extending.[8]


  • Aquamarines were favored by the gods Deep Sashelas and Eldath.[9]
  • Priests of Istishia sometimes carved their symbolic wave into an aquamarine worn on a ring, medallion, or brooch.[10]
