To be classified as emerald stones must go through rigorous testing. Richness of colour, saturation, tone and clarity must all reach a set standard before green beryl can officially be classified as emerald.
With that said to prevent confusion in the wider retail market, all green beryl irrespective of grade tends to be known as emerald.
Emerald is very rarely found without inclusions or surface reaching fissures. These long narrow breakages are caused by splitting or cracking during the crystal's formation.
In Ancient Rome emerald was associated with reproduction. It was dedicated to Venus goddess of love, beauty, desire and sex. To the early Christians it represented the resurrection.
Today when used as a healing crystal it's considered to be a stone of successful love. It's said to bring domestic bliss and instils sensitivity and loyalty within one's self as well as others.
Our grade A emerald crystals are a medium size tumbled stone. As with most stones that have been tumbled, weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece.
