Emerald smykkesten Color
With emeralds, even more so than other colored gems, it is the color that is the chief determinant of value. By definition, emeralds are a medium to darker green to blue-green and sometimes slightly yellowish-green beryl. Emeralds owe their fine green color to traces of chromium and/or vanadium impurities. The most popular and valuable color is a slightly bluish green in a medium dark tone with strong to vivid saturation, however, too much blue can decrease the value.
The term “Colombian emeralds” is often used to describe vivid, slightly bluish-green stones of a medium to medium dark color, regardless of their geographic origin. Emeralds of a lighter color are sometimes called “Brazilian emeralds”, even if they were mined in Africa.
Emerald smykkesten Clarity and Luster
Emeralds have a vitreous (glass-like) luster when cut and polished. Although their clarity can occur from translucent to opaque, transparent specimens are most desirable and are much more valuable. Clarity is important, but inclusions are tolerated more in emeralds than virtually any other gem. Unlike other beryl gems, emeralds often contain inclusions and other flaws. These flaws are not looked upon as negative attributes for emeralds, as they would be for other gemstones. Indeed, these flaws are considered part of the character of the stone and are used to assure the purchaser of a natural stone.
Emerald clarity is graded by eye, unlike diamond, where 10x loupe magnification is used to grade clarity. If an emerald has no inclusions that are visible to the naked eye, it is considered flawless. “Eye-clean” stones will command the highest prices, especially those with ideal color grade.
Emerald smykkesten Cut and Shape
Emeralds are most often cut in a special cut designed just for this gem; “the emerald-cut”. The emerald cut is a step-cut or trap-cut featuring a rectangular or square shape with truncated corners. This cutting style maximizes the beauty and color of the stone, whilst protecting it from mechanical strain and internal stress. Emeralds are also cut into a variety of other traditional shapes such as pear, oval and round. Lower grade materials are often cut en cabochon or into beads. Highly transparent and clear materials are sometimes cut in brilliant-style.
Emerald smykkesten Treatment
Oiling is a common emerald treatment and in most cases, it is done right at the mining location. The term ‘oiling’ refers to the practice of immersing emeralds in a colorless oil or resin (most often cedar oil) in order to enhance color, clarity and stability. This is also often done using a vacuum chamber to assist penetration. Non-standard treatments go beyond this by using colored oils and epoxy-like resins.
These treatments dramatically improve the appearance of the gems, but necessitate special care in cleaning and setting. Steam cleaners, solvents and ultrasonic cleaners can remove the oils, making inclusions that were barely visible stand out in sharp relief. Since emeralds can be restored through re-oiling, the damage is considered to be only temporary.
Synthetic emeralds have been available since 1848. In the 1950s, synthesizing methods became commercialized and excellent quality synthetics have been made available since. The term ‘Chatham emeralds’ is often used for lab-grown emeralds. There are also numerous emerald doublets available. In many cases, a natural upper-half is cemented to a glass or synthetic pavilion using an emerald-green paste. With the visibility of emerald flaws from the crown down, once these are set into jewelry, they are often sold as natural emeralds.
Folklore, Legend, and Healing Properties:
Emerald is the Modern and Traditional birthstone for May. It is also listed as a birthstone for the Zodiac signs for Taurus and Cancer, as the Planetary stone for Taurus and the Talismanic stone for Gemini. Emerald is the only stone, besides Topaz, that is listed as in all of the ancient birthstone tables. This gem is suggested as an anniversary gift for the 20th and 35th anniversaries and as an alternate stone for the 55th wedding anniversary.
The name Emerald is derived from the French “esmeraude” and the Greek root “smaragdos” which means ‘green gemstone’. Emeralds were used as amulets to ward off epilepsy in children and thought to cure diseases of the eye. Folklore suggests that these stones will improve memory, intelligence, and enhance clairvoyance thus helping to predict future events. They are also worn to enhance love and contentment. Cleopatra prized emeralds above all other gems.
