Emerald

 



Emeralds are one of the most loved gems and have been highly prized since ancient Egyptian times. They are found in South America, North Carolina in the US , Africa, Australia, Russia, and Myanmar.

The beautiful stones are quite hard but they are also brittle because of natural inclusions. Perfect emerald rings are expensive and extremely rare. Color is the most important aspect when buying emeralds. Emeralds that are not too dark or too light with a deep, vivid green are the most expensive. However, all shades of emeralds are popular.

Emeralds are the birthstone for people born in May, and in the west they are recommended for 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.

In Myanmar the emerald represents peace and calmness, and when set in a ring it is designated to be worn on the middle finger.
