If you have found yourself on this page, your color is green. Emeralds range from a yellow-green to a blue-green hue. In gemology, the color of gemstones are divided into three different components: Hue, saturation, and tone. In this instance, only gems that are medium to dark in tone are considered emeralds, whereas the lighter-toned gems are called green beryl.
Emeralds are associated with many qualities, such as peace, security, and new beginnings. However, emeralds are also the long-standing symbol of loyalty. Show your devotion to a loved one with the gorgeous green glow of clear emerald jewelry.
Since before 2000 BC, emeralds were mined in Egypt, and were highly valued by Queen Cleopatra. Egyptians believed that the color green was a depiction of renewal, as the Earth grew green in springtime. In turn, the gem came to stand for fertility, ease of childbirth and rebirth, which were qualities very important to Egyptians. Mummies were sometimes buried wearing emeralds in the hope that they would be brought eternal youth in the afterlife.
The span of emerald’s healing qualities span even beyond Egypt and to many other cultures. It is believed to lift depression, promote mental clarity, reduce stress and ward off evil spirits.
Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty is represented by the color green and is the ruling force over the Taurus sun sign (April 21 - May 21). Therefore, it makes sense that those who are born in May have the green emerald gem as their birthstone.
Despite their tendency in history to be worn by kings and queens of the ages, emeralds are a rather fragile gem. Their delicate nature makes them even more worthy of value and safekeeping. Emerald crystals, when formed in their matrix, typically result in a stone with a large number of inclusions, which likely compromises the gem’s strength. Because of this, emeralds commonly have internal hairline fissures that reach the surface, making them prone to cracking if hit.
Emeralds do, however, score well on the Mohs gem hardness scale, with a 7.5-8 out of 10. They are not vulnerable to surface scratches, but they are brittle, in that they can be chipped or broken if there is impact. Regardless, emeralds have been a highly desirable gem for thousands of years, and their incredible beauty still lives on today.
