Emerald is one of the most valuable stones found in nature. A member
of the beryl family with the element
chromium giving it its distinctive green colour.
mined in Egypt at the Cleopatra mine, emeralds have long been valued
and desired as symbol of wealth and prosperity. Today the country most
associated with emerald is Columbia, though the Columbians’ domination
of world markets ceased when mines were discovered in Africa and in
other parts of the world
the first century traveller and explorer wrote about emerald that “no

calms the mind and relieves eye-strain.
