KING OF ALL GREEN GEMSTONES
For over 4,000 years, this miraculous gemstone has always been the most wanted in soothing and comforting the soul with its unparalleled green hue. This truly remarkable gemstone has always been believed to represent love, eternal youth, and rebirth. Over the centuries, this gemstone has inspired countless names to describe its lush green beauty. Places worldwide such as The Emerald Isle in Ireland, the Philippines, Muntinlupa City, Washington, Seattle, and Oregon are all known as the Emerald City.
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.
Emerald is the most famous gem from the Beryl family amongstt Aquamarine, Golden Beryl, and Morganite. Emeralds with ligger green tones are less expensive than the highly saturated deep green color.
