The Magnificent Allure of Emerald Gemstones

emerald gemstonesEmerald gemstones signify the month of May. Like spring, emeralds represent rebirth, good fortune, youth, and renewal. 

Emerald is rooted from smaragdus, defining green in Greek.

The first emerald was unearthed in Egypt in 300 B.C. Cleopatra infamously adored the stone. In ancient Egyptian texts, Cleopatra found the "Cleopatra Emerald" weighing at an unimaginable 97 karats. She split the gemstone in half, giving it to Marc Antony. After Marc Antony fought the Romans and died, architects tried to find his missing half. They never located it.

Mysterious incidents began to occur while the owner of the Cleopatra Emerald tried to transport Cleopatra's half. To this day, it is said to be cursed and the only way to remove the curse is to reunite the halves.

The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, the Atlantean are 12 tablets filled with texts about mysticism. Thoth's Emerald Tablets are described as a rich emerald-green. The properties of the tablets make them imperishable, defying the laws of ionization due to the fixed cellular and atomic structure.

The emerald gemstone structure comprises vanadium, chromium, and iron in the beryl mineral. A spectrum of hues occurs in the presence of its chemical properties. For example, a stone consisting of a stronger chromium and vanadium reaction creates a darker green. The third element, iron, may give off a bluish tinted emerald.

The discrepancy of the emerald has changed, however. In the 1960s, vanadium emeralds were declared actual emeralds by the jewelry industry. Internationally, the distinction is different due to grade differences. This introduced the "Colombian emerald".

The crystal system is hexagonal in nature. Radiant and square cuts tend to emphasize and suit the stone. The enchanting "emerald cut" provides a hypnotic rectangular or square step, creating endless geometric illusions. 

High-quality emeralds are hard to find, thus color treatments continue to enhance the gemstone. Classic in its enduring and bewitching symbolism, the illustrious emerald transforms seers and wearers alike.
