What distinguishes emeralds as gemstones?

Along with the diamond, ruby and sapphire, the emerald is one of the classic gemstones that have all the typical characteristics: a certain rarity, its own transparency and a Mohs hardness of over 7 – in the case of the emerald it is 7.5-8. Predestined for processing in fine jewelry.

Emeralds are a variety of the mineral beryl, blue forms are called aquamarine, pink ones are called morganite, yellow ones are called gold beryl or helidor, whereas the green ones are called emerald. The color is created, much like colored diamonds, by the inclusion of certain substances in the crystal lattice of the gemstone. In the case of emerald, it is chromium that gives the stone its typical deep green colour.
