Emerald is the intense green or blusish green gem
variety of the mineral beryl, or Beryllium aluminum silicate
having a hardness of 7.5 to 8 Mohs, and a specific gravity
of 2.63 to 2.91.
Along with the Emerald are:
Aquamarine: Greenish blue or light blue
Morganite: Pink, purple pink, or peach
Heliodore: Golden yellow to golden green
Red beryl: Raspberry red
Goshenite: Colorless, greenish yellow, yellow green, brownish
Emeralds of ancient times
were mined chiefly in Egypt and large specimens have been found in Siberia.
Most gem specimens are now mined in Colombia.
|The emerald was known in
ancient times, not only for its beauty but also for its alleged power of
healing diseases of the eye. It is essentially identical to other types
of beryl in composition and properties, but contains sufficient chromium
to impart a bright green color. Emeralds sometimes contain featherlike
material, often call "silk" which causes the gem to have a mossy appearance.
Flawless specimens of good color and size are exceedingly rare and command
higher prices than diamonds of equal weight.
Though emeralds are mined
in Brazil, Tanzania and India, only the Colombian emerald bears the pure
intense green that has earned the Colombian emerald the title "King of
Emeralds". Colombian emeralds are known for not bearing blue, yellow or
gray color variations. Always the Colombian stone is considered more precious
