Interesting Facts About Emeralds.....
Emeralds have been revered for centuries, long before the birth of Christ. In the ancient Indian holy scriptures, the Vedas, it was written that emeralds could bring good luck and enhance well-being, while Egyptians mined them as far back as1800BC. Many mummies have been found to be buried with emeralds.
One of the largest emeralds in the world is the "Mogul Emerald", discovered over 300 years ago and during the Mogul Dynasty which ruled India between 1526 and 1857. Standing 10cm high and weighing in at 217.80 carats, the Mogul has an Islamic prayer inscription on one side and floral engravings on the other. In 2001, it sold at Christie's in London for $2.2 million.
These beautiful, vivid green gemstones are found in many locations around the world, although the finest examples are considered to come from Columbia. Some of the oldest emeralds in the world however come from Zimbabwe, where they date back as much as 2600 million years ago. Emeralds consist of the mineral beryl, but their distinctive hue is as a result of traces of chromium and vanadium.
