WHAT IS EMERALD:
Emeralds are made from the mineral Beryl.
Its green colour comes from chromium or vanadium.
It registers 7.5-8 on the Mohs scale of hardness, similar to hardened steel.
However, emeralds contain natural inclusions and can be quite brittle.
The word “emerald” comes from the Greek smaragdus meaning “green”.
Although emeralds are mined in Zambia, Afghanistan and other countries, Colombia is famed for the high quality and rich green colour of its gems.
Country of origin: Zambia
