A member of the same Beryl group as aquamarine, stones that are colored green with chromium or vanadium are called emeralds.
Stones that turn green due to iron and stones that lack chromium are called beryl instead of emeralds. However, the stones colored by vanadium have been recognized as emeralds for about 10 years.
Emeralds undergo complex volcanic activity from multiple mines and contain rare chromium and vanadium, resulting in an attractive, bright green color.
However, due to its complicated volcanic activity, there are so many internal scratches that it is said that there is no emerald without scratches, and it is also brittle.
However, it is often useful as a proof of nature and as a clue to identify the place of origin.
