Emerald is the most precious stone in the beryl group. The wonderful green color of emerald is unparalleled in the gem world. Emerald, by definition, is a medium or darker green to blue green beryl, in which the green color is derived from impurities of chromium, vanadium, or a combination of both. The most popular and valuable color is a slightly bluish green in a medium dark tone with strong to vivid saturation. Clarity is important, but inclusions are tolerated more in emerald than virtually any other gem. Unlike other beryl gems, emeralds often contain inclusions and other flaws. These flaws are not looked on as negative aspects for emerald like 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.
Colombia is without doubt the best-known emerald source in the world. The most famous emerald deposit in Colombia is the Muzo Mine, to the northwest of Bogota. Emeralds from the Muzo Mine are of fine quality and have a deep green color. Another important deposit is the Chivor Mine, to the northeast of Bogota. More recent, new deposits have also been discovered, which make the future of Colombian emerald look bright.
