Emerald is characterized by lush green hues and rare beauty. Emeralds come in a variety of light and dark shades of green, and often with subtle background hues of other colors like yellow, blue, brown or gray. Generally, the purer and richer the green, the more valuable the stone.

According to Legend:  Emeralds were thought to soothe the soul, help in seeing the future, ward off evil spirits and cure ailments ranging from bad eyesight to infertility. The stone was also said to improve memory and bring great wealth to its wearer.

Care:  The gem ranks 7.5-8 on the Mohs hardness scale. This means that emerald, while relatively hard, can still be scratched, chipped or split. Emeralds have been known to crack when exposed to extreme temperatures. In caring for your emerald, avoid ultrasonic cleaners, or harsh cleansers that can damage the emerald’s oils and relatively soft surface. Clean with a soft, damp cloth and warm water, and a soft bristle brush if needed.
