Emeralds are considered one of the 4 "original" gemstones, the most sought-after and enduring of all the jewels on Earth- the others being Diamond, Ruby & Sapphire.
With natural inclusions as one of their key characteristics, it's very difficult to find clear and bright Emeralds. For that reason, some of the finest quality Emeralds are even dearer than Diamonds.
