Here Are 7 Surprising Facts On Emeralds

Published

on

The name emerald simply means a green gem. That is perfectly logical, for if there is one defining characteristic of emeralds, it is their impossibly rich green color.  Take a look at the facts and history of emeralds and their legends and associations, as well as a peek at some of the most spectacular emerald jewelry the world has ever known.

 1. Emerald Has History 

The oldest emeralds are about 2.97 billion years old. The first known emeralds were mined in Egypt around 1500 BC. One of Cleopatra’s favorite stones was emerald, and her passion for the stone was well documented. Emeralds were discovered in South America in the 16th century by the Spanish. They were used by the Incas well before this discovery. The Spanish traded emeralds across Europe and Asia for precious metals, which opened up the emerald trade to the rest of the world.

 

2. They Have High Value In The Market 

Top-quality emeralds can be worth more than diamonds on a per-carat basis. Most emeralds have some type of inclusion or imperfection, and emeralds without imperfections or inclusions are very rare. Instead of the term imperfection, dealers like to reference emerald inclusions as an internal Jardin. Color, clarity, cut, and carat weight are four factors used to determine the value of an emerald.

3. Emeralds are not very strong themselves

They are the most delicate and brittle of the four gemstones and don’t take pressure very well. Because emeralds are so brittle, finding a good quality gemstone is difficult and other materials are often introduced into them. These inclusions are accepted, giving each emerald a distinct personality.Also, Emeralds are the only gemstones to have a diamond-cut named after them, the classic rectangular step-cut.

4. World’s Largest Emerald

Emeralds

The Bahia Emerald is one of the largest emeralds and contains the largest single stone ever found. The stone, weighing approximately 341 kg originated from Bahia, Brazil and is emerald crystals embedded in host rock. It narrowly escaped flooding during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 during a period of storage in a warehouse in New Orleans. It was subsequently reported stolen in September 2008 from a secured vault in South El Monte in Los Angeles County, California.

5. Emerald Can Be Produced Synthetically 

Emeralds

Because of emerald’s high value, attempts were long made to manufacture it synthetically. These efforts finally met with success between 1934 and 1937, when a German patent was issued to cover its synthesis. Synthetic emeralds are currently manufactured in the United States by either a molten-flux process or a hydrothermal method; in the latter technique, aquamarine crystals are placed in a water solution at elevated temperature and pressure and used as a seed to produce emerald.

6. Why The Color?

 

The most important factor that determines an emerald’s value is its color. Emeralds are made from Beryl, just like aquamarine and they get their green color from chromium and vanadium. Emeralds are formed when chromium, vanadium, and iron are present in the mineral beryl. The varying presence of these three elements gives emerald its range of color. Chromium and vanadium make an intense green color. Iron gives the stone a bluish tint.

Emeralds: More Precious Than Diamonds

Did you know that diamonds are not the world’s most valuable gems? There is another gemstone that, in its most fine form. It can be even more rare and costly than a fine diamond of the same size. The gemstone that can make this impressive claim is the emerald.  Columbia yields some of the finest ones in the world. It is also responsible for mining over 50% of all emerald production worldwide! The other two top countries they come from are Brazil and Zambia
