The name emerald comes from the Greek word smaragdos, which means green stone. Like aquamarine and morganite, it belongs to the mineral family of beryllen and it is one of the most famous and precious gemstones. The green color is due to the traces of chromium, iron and vanadium in the mineral. Depending on the concentration of these components, the green color palette can be very different. From light pastels to deep green with or without a yellowish or blue secondary shade.
The typical emerald color is so distinctive that it is used as a color name on its own. The human is also sensitive to green which has made it highly prized by all ancient civilizations. The emerald is one of the type 3 gemstones, which means that here naturally contain inclusions that are usually visible to the naked eye. These inclusions in emeralds are also called jardin (French for garden). They are regarded as a sign of authenticity and give each stone its own character. Loupe pure emeralds of more than one carat are a real rarity and are traded at high prices.
Today emeralds are mined in Colombia Brazil, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe and India. However, the first place where this gem was found is Colombia. The beauty of the Colombian emeralds can hardly be compared to any other occurrence in the world. This is mainly due to geological reasons. The emeralds that occur here, unlike most sites, originate in cavities, so that the crystals are of high quality. Russian emeralds are also a specialty, but currently mining is almost gone. Besides Colombia, Zimbabwe is nowadays the most important producer of top quality emeralds.
Many emeralds are treated with oils or resins to fill cracks in the material and thus improve transparency, a form of treatment that has been recognized for centuries, and there is nothing wrong with it, as long as they are colorless oils. Completely untreated emeralds are absolute rarities and are priced in completely different regions.
Unfortunately, it is very difficult to display high-quality, highly saturated emeralds in their true color, as the green tone sometimes falls outside the reproducible color range that computer screens can display, which is why it is especially important here to view the stone live under different lighting conditions.
Emeralds should not be cleaned in an ultrasonic bath.
