Emerald, in the ancient times was the name generally used for green stones or even for green glass. The origin of the name alludes to its ancient greek name samaragdos, which means ’green stone’. A flawed stone with a deep green hue is worth more than a light-toned, but clear gem. A flawless emerald is rear – generally every piece has a blemish either splits, inclusions, veils, or gas bubbles, but they don’t reduce the value. Chrome is responsible for the specific color and is resistent to light or heat. Though the color of an emerald can be change with extreme heat, these fermented stones have a much lower value. Emeralds are generally set in fine gold. Our advise to you is to take great care with an emerald piece – not only because of it is rare and valuable, but its also extremly fragile.
