The name 'Emerald' was derived from the ancient greek green, "asparagus." Emerald was first known to be mined in ancient Egypt, dating back from 330 BC to the 1700s. At that time, the Queen of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt(Cleopatra) was known to have a strong passion for emeralds and always used them in her royal adornments.
Today emeralds are sourced from several countries across the globe, with Columbians producing some of the most delicate and most precious emeralds today. Zambia, Brazil, Russia, Afghanistan, and Zimbabwe have gem-quality emeralds used in fine jewelry.
