Emerald is a variety of beryl that possesses a green hue due to the presence of chromium, and occasionally vanadium. Its name comes from the French word "esmeraude", first used in the 14th century. Emeralds have been sought after for over 5000 years. Ancient civilizations in Africa, Asia, and South America all prized their beauty. These are small emerald crystals that have been left in the matrix for size and stability. 

Emeralds are a symbol of loyalty and unconditional love. They promote compassion and unity among friends and family.
