Green gems

  • Emerald is the most popular and one of the most precious stones on the planet. Emerald is a type of beryl that jewelers appreciate for their high natural purity, which is provided by the presence of chromium in the chemical composition of the mineral. In a natural form, an emerald is unlikely to attract anyone; all greatness, brightness and brilliance is betrayed to it by the correct cut. Emerald is never combined with silver, as it is a sign of bad taste. The color scheme is all shades of green, if there are other shades in the stone, its cost is sharply reduced. Stone is mined in Colombia, Russia, India and Afghanistan.

  • Tsavorit is a stone that was found near the Tsavo River (hence the name).Tsavorite is an expensive jewel-cut stone, which is very popular among wealthy women. Places of mining - Madagascar and East Africa, while the stone is no more than three carats, and when creating jewelry is usually combined with silver. The peculiarity of the tsavorite is that it is not processed and is not created synthetically, which excludes the possibility of a fake.

  • Demantoid is a diamond-like mineral having a grass-green color. The stone enjoyed tremendous popularity among Russian kings, for them it was an indicator of status and wealth. In general, a stone can have different shades of green, and sometimes yellow varieties can be found. The play of light is ensured by the strong refraction that the gem possesses. It is worth noting that this stone is mined in the Urals and it is popular only in Russia. In one year, it turned out to be the most possible to extract a little more than 100 kilograms of mineral, but it was still at the beginning of the last century. Recently, they began to mine stone in Namibia, however, only the stone that was mined in the Urals is considered precious.
