Emeralds are in the beryl family of gemstones, with Morganites, Aquamarines, Goshenites, Heliodors, etc. as siblings. Emeralds are classified as a Type III gemstone - meaning inclusions are common and don't detract significantly from the value of transparent gemstones. The factors when appraising emeralds are the color (primary factor), clarity, size and cut - in that order. The color of this emerald is perfect - a natural, well-saturated bluish green. This emerald is also transparent - light passes easily through the gemstone and the clarity is great for an emerald.
Clarity of all colored gemstones is determined using the naked eye, as opposed to grading diamonds which is determined by using a 10x loupe. This emerald's color and clarity are superb - the very best color and saturation.
Legend & Lore*:
People believed emeralds could confer riches, power, and eloquence if worn as talismans. Purportedly, these gems also strengthened memory and sharpened wits. Its most valuable power? Perhaps bestowing the ability to predict future events.
