Emerald is one of the green beryl gemstones. It's not a very clean gem because there is quite a lot of uncleanness inside. It's more popular than other types of green beryl gemstones but there is a beautiful green color and hard to find good quality. Therefore, emeralds are more expensive than other types of beryl. Some emaralds are of good quality. The price may be similar to that of an emerald diamond.

It is believed that one who is in possession of an Emerald will be provided with the protection of God, blessed with good fortune, posses mystical powers, have strengthened memory, intelligence, and the ability to predict the future. Emeralds are also believed to hold healing powers, both emotional and physical.
Emerald can also represent a faithful relationship and strong natural connection with a partner. Some believe that the emerald can reveal true love and bring partners closer together. While the ruby is known to be the stone of passionate love, the emerald is known to be the stone of faithful, deep and mature love.


Color There are hues ranging from yellow-green to blue-green, with the primary hue necessarily being green. Yellow and blue are the normal secondary hues found in emeralds. Only gems that are medium to dark in tone are considered emeralds; light-toned gems are known instead by the species name green beryl.
Clarity Transparent
Cut Emeralds can be cut into a variety of shapes. Common shapes include a step or emerald cut.
