The emerald-cut is a shape that was developed to maximize the color of emerald gemstones. Therefore, if you are looking for a gem that shows pure, unadulterated color at its best, emerald cut gems are the right choice. The emerald-cut showcases the color of a gemstone.
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.

I am so pleased with the gems I purchased. I will recommend you to all my friends
I love GemSelect! Every stone that I ever purchased has been carefully packaged, and sometimes comes with origin info. The stone I just ordered is for my engagement ring, because my Fiance is making my ring! I am so amazed with the selection that this site has, and I am so impressed with the prices.
