Emerald is the most precious stone in the beryl group. The wonderful green color of emerald is unparalleled in the gem world. Most of the finest emerald available today is sourced from either Colombia, Zambia or Afghanistan. Emerald, by definition, is a medium or darker green to blue-green beryl, in which the green color is derived from impurities of chromium, vanadium, or a combination of both. The most popular and valuable color is a slightly bluish green in a medium dark tone with strong to vivid saturation.Clarity is important, but inclusions are tolerated more in emerald than virtually any other gem. Unlike other beryl gems, emeralds often contain inclusions and other flaws. These flaws are not looked on as negative aspects for emerald like they would be for other gemstones. Indeed, these flaws are considered part of the character of the stone and are used to assure the purchaser of a natural stone. Other beryl gemstones, include golden precious beryl(SOMETIMES referred to as heliodor), Pink morganite, blue-green aquamarine, red bixbite and white goshenite. Emeralds are often given the classic 'emerald-cut'
Green emerald is indeed one of the most classic green gemstone types frequently used in rings.Emerald is also very well suited for all other types of gemstone jewelry too, including gemstone earrings,pins and brooches,as well as in necklaces and fashionable gemstone pendants.
