The majority of emeralds that are purchased are bluish-green to lush, pure green with vivid color saturation and a not-too-dark tone. Emeralds are in high demand because of their high transparency, uniform color distribution, and lack of color zoning.
This gem comes in a variety of shades, ranging from a deep green to emeralds with pale green hues. Usually, they are graded based on color, clarity, cut, and carat weight. However, color seems to be the most important characteristic, especially when determining a natural emerald's quality and value.
HISTORY OF BIRTHSTONE OF MAY
In ancient times, emeralds were mined on Mount Smaragdus in Ancient Egypt since 1500 BC, and in India and Austria since at least the 14th century AD. The Egyptian mines were industrially exploited by the Roman, Byzantine, and later Islamic conquerors. With the discovery of the Colombian deposits, mining in Egypt ended.
Colombia is by far the largest producer of emeralds in the world, producing 50–95% of all emeralds, with the percentage varying depending on the year, source, and grade.
There are other green gems, like tourmaline and peridot, but emerald is the one that’s always associated with the lushest landscapes and the richest greens.
BENEFITS, MEANING, AND, USES OF EMERALD
Emerald also known as Panna or Zamard is by far the most famous precious stone besides Ruby and Sapphire.
- Cleopatra is probably the most well-known historical figure who owned emeralds. During her time in power, she even asserted her ownership of all Egyptian emerald mines. Emeralds were used in both jewelry and elaborate burials by the Egyptians, who frequently buried them alongside monarchs as protection symbols.
- The Muzo Indians of Colombia, on the other side of the world, had well-hidden and highly prized emerald mines. The Spanish conquistadors had to search for these mines for nearly two centuries because they were so hidden.
- Today, emerald is a symbol of loyalty, new beginnings, peace, and security, making it not only a beautiful gem to wear, but also a meaningful jewelry gift to be treasured by the receiver.
