To own an Emerald is to own a piece of history, a piece of nature, and a work of art. With its array of inclusions and clouds, the gem is not famed for its crystal clarity, but is steeped in so much history that we automatically ignore the gem’s imperfections when we study a piece and accept that these impurities are simply “the fingerprints of Mother Nature”. Its price is often greater than Diamonds of a similar carat weight. Some Emeralds have an almost velvety appearance and are one of only a few gems where inclusions are not only tolerated but considered to be part of the gem’s character. Its name is derived from the Greek word “smaragdos”, a label given to a number of gems with the colour green in common.
Diamonds are far from evenly distributed over the Earth. Clifford's rule states that they are almost always found in kimberlites on the oldest part of cratons, the stable cores of continents with typical ages of 2.5 billion years or more. Kimberlite pipes can be difficult to find. If they are visible in outcrops, the Diamonds are never visible because they are so rare. Finding kimberlites requires persistence, and only a small fraction contain Diamonds that are commercially viable. Since existing mines have lifetimes of as little as 25 years, there could be a shortage of new Diamonds in the future, making them a sensible investment.
