Emeralds are known to be of the mineral beryl variety. It is formed when beryl is contacted with traces of chromium or even vanadium at times. This is what gives them their signature green color! emeralds have said to have first been discovered mined in Egypt around 1500 BC. These emeralds were highly favored by Cleopatra so much, so a number of her royal adornments featured these stones. The name emerald is derived from the Latin word “smaragdus” which is originated from the Greek word “smaragdus” which translates to “green gem.” Although this gem can be found all over the world, 50% of the world’s emerald comes directly from Colombia.
