Emerald

The emerald has long been valued as a gemstone, with deep-green crystals commanding the highest prices. Emeralds contain inclusions, a sign of authenticity, and do not necessarily detract from their value. Synthetic emeralds are now being produced with inclusions similar to those in natural crystals.

Crystal structure: Hexagonal

Color : Bright green, light green, yellow-green or dark green.
