Aquamarine is a fairly common gemstone, so it is not cost-efficient to commercially produce synthetic aqumarine. While it is possible to synthesize the beryls and inject the right colorants, aquamarine is not one of the gemstones that are generally commercially synthesized. However, most gem aquamarine is heat treated.
