Facts About Emeralds
Many people are unaware that emeralds are actually a form of the gemstone known as beryl, given their green color by the chromium contained in them. Emeralds have been mined for centuries, and in fact were being found in Egypt as long ago as 1500 BC. Today, the world’s greatest producer of emeralds is Columbia, followed by Zambia, although emeralds can be found in the USA too. They are found in 5 states – both Carolinas, Nevada, Montana, and Connecticut. Emeralds have long held cultural significance, both as the birthstone for May and in India, where the idol of the goddess Minakshi in the country’s most famous temple, the Madurai Minakshiamman, is carved entirely from a single large emerald.
