Emerald is a beryl (like aquamarine). Best sources are from Colombia, Zambia and Brazil. The color of emeralds varies according to its source with a strong, slightly bluish green being the most desirable color. Very few emeralds are 'clean.' They often have inclusions and can appear sleepy or cloudy. If you don't see what you're looking for, contact us. We offer custom jewelry without design fees.
