Emerald

What are Emeralds?

Emeralds were formed millions of years ago and, due to the unique set of circumstances required, are incredibly rare. Emeralds belong to the mineral family known as beryl: several different varieties of the mineral exist, including aquamarine, morganite and heliodor, but the green emerald is the most prized and valuable.
An emerald’s colour – varying from bluish green to pure green with vivid colour saturation – is determined by the levels of chromium, vanadium and iron present in the gemstone.

How are Emeralds Formed?
