FAQ's

What makes emeralds green?

Emeralds are green due to the presence of chromium and sometimes vanadium in their structure.

How can I tell if an emerald is real?

Check for natural inclusions, often visible to the naked eye. A jeweler's loupe can help spot these 'jardin', or garden, which are typical in real emeralds.

What's the most famous emerald out there?

The Bahia Emerald, one of the largest, is famous for its massive size and the legal battles it sparked.

Do emeralds have special powers?

Traditionally, emeralds are believed to bring wisdom, enhance speech, and sharpen the intellect.
