Correctly Known as Green Beryl
Beautiful green emerald crystals or to be more geologically accurate, green beryl because although these are fine grade stones they're not considered to be 'gem quality'. One of the original four 'precious' gemstones, emerald is the green variety of the mineral beryl but this alone does not give the stone the automatic right to be called an emerald. Richness of colour, saturation, tone and clarity must all reach a specific grade and only then can green beryl officially be classified as emerald. Gem quality emeralds are highly sought after and prices can often rival the price of a fine diamond.
From a gemology and geology perspective emerald tumbled stones or crystals depending on how you prefer to refer to them, should really be called green beryl but in order to prevent unnecessary confusion they're widely known as emeralds.
Emerald is one of the very few gemstones that's rarely found without inclusions or surface reaching fissures. These are long narrow breakages caused by splitting or cracking during the rock's formation.
In Ancient Rome emerald was associated with reproduction hence was dedicated to Venus Goddess of love, beauty, desire and sex. To the early Christians it represented the resurrection. Today in crystal healing emerald is considered to be a stone of successful love which brings domestic bliss and instils sensitivity and loyalty within one's self as well as others. It is believed to have memory enhancing properties which includes the ability to increase memory capacity and combine intelligence and understanding enabling one to take the right action, choice or decision.
