Emerald Is a precious green variety of Beryl, similar in constitution to Aquamarine (Blue Beryl), Morganite (Pink Beryl), and Heliodor (Golden Beryl). Beryl’s are Silicate minerals with a hexagonal crystal structure. Pure Beryl Is a colorless mineral but it is usually colored by impurities resulting in the different forms of beryl we see more frequently than colorless specimens. Emerald gets its striking green color from the presence of chromium and vanadium. They have been mined all over the world throughout history but today most specimens commercially available are mined in the towns of Muzo, Coscuez, and Chivor, Colombia followed by the second largest exporter of emeralds in the world, Zambia.
