THE ENVIABLE EMERALD

For those lucky enough to be born in May, the envy-inspiring emerald is their official birthstone. However, stunning emeralds are not just for May babies. Throughout history, this precious green gemstone has been sought by both royals and common folk, alike. In fact, the deep and richly-colored green beauties have reigned as one of the world’s most desirable gemstones for centuries.

The emerald is considered the most precious and valuable gem of the beryl family of stones. For admirers of the storied gem, the allure of the emerald is all about the color, color, color. Emeralds are prized – and often revered – for their intensely brilliant green color ranging in hues from yellow greens to bluish greens to intense dark greens. The stones have often thought to be “magical” because of their tendency toward an almost mystical radiance. The deep green glimmer of the emerald is unmatched in the world of gemstones and is considered among the “precious four,” a short list of high-end gemstones that also includes the diamond, rubies and sapphires.

The Meaning of Emeralds

The name comes from the old French word ‘esmeralde,’ which is a derivative of the Greek word ‘smaragdos,’ simply meaning ‘green stone.’ The rich and magnificent green of the emerald has been thought to convey harmony, nature, beauty and love. It is often associated with Springtime, resurgence and re-growth.

Where To Find Beautiful Emeralds

Colombia is the most widely known source for the highly desirable dark green emerald, although the stones can be found in and mined from many places around the globe including Africa and across Europe. However, probably the oldest known emerald finds were once made near the Red Sea in Egypt.
