About Beautiful And Valuable Rough Emerald

Smaragados is a Greek word for green. From there, through similar Latin word, to Emeralds we all love and appreciate. These beryl gemstones are so lovely colored thanks to vanadium or chromium impurities within, and sometimes both, as well as a little bit of iron. Light or darker shades of bluish or even yellowish green stone comes from Brazil, Colombia and Zambia, as a rough emerald.

The most beautiful and appreciated emeralds are traditionally found in Colombia, and these are of the highest quality. The ones coming from Zambia have fewer flaws and deep green color, and the ones coming from Brazil are also really appreciated. In any case, the most desirable color of an emerald is a slightly bluish green, with medium dark tone and strong to vivid saturation.

This beautiful, green colored gemstone symbolizes love, mercy and compassion, and that’s why people often call it the stone of heart.
