Emerald is one of the most highly valued gemstones. It has been known and celebrated throughout human history. In ancient times, large quantities of high-grade emerald were mined in Egypt, which is likely the source of the emeralds mentioned in the Bible. Emerald is a variety of beryl, cousin to aquamarine, heliodor, red beryl and morganite. It is defined by its lush green color, which is usually caused by the presence of the element chromium, though vanadium can also give an emerald-green hue. Their rich, almost glowing color, as well as good hardness has made them a favorite throughout history.
This specimen has two major crystals and a number of smaller ones in a hard, grey matrix. I don't know where it is from or whether it is a chromium or vanadium emerald, but it does have good color and crystal form. The longer crystal measures .45 inches (1.15 cm) in length. Overall, it's a nice specimen and a good example of the species. The whole specimen measures about 1 1/8 inches (2.9 cm) across.
