Emerald (classified as precious stone) has a deep and vivid colour of green. Emerald gets its name from the French ‘Esmeraude’ and the Middle English word of ‘Emeraude’ which mean “green gem”. Being the member of beryl family, Emerald takes its colour from the traces of chromium and vanadium amounts occurring during the formation of the stone. Moreover, it has birthmarks which means inclusions and surface-reaching fractures. These inclusions and its intense green colour make it unique and special. Due to its chemical structure, Emerald is a little fragile and chips easily during it is faceted. However, a special ‘Emerald Cut’ was developed to maintain the integrity of the Emerald crystal. And it became popular over the years not only for emeralds, but also for other gemstones. It refers to a typical rectangular shape with facets, so the true beauty of this gemstone is brought out. The stone is mined mostly in Columbia and Ural mountains of Russia, Zambia, India, Madagascar, Norway, Brazil, Pakistan, Australia and United States Of America.
