[Gem Knowledge] Representative of copper-green gemstones - Emerald


The bright copper-green color of emerald is one of its major symbols. Where does its copper-green color come from? .....


The origin of the copper-green color is the color obtained by "oxidation" caused by the metal surface being exposed to the air for many years. Copper green is reused all over the world. For example, ancient Chinese handicrafts, the Statue of Liberty in the United States, and Japanese shrines all like to use this color.

Among gemstones, emerald is the representative of copper-green. That bright green color is not common among many gemstones. Emerald is the most noble member of the six pillar stones and belongs to the hexagonal crystal system. It is originally colorless, but different colors appear under the influence of color-causing elements, such as morganite and aquamarine, etc. They are all members of the six-pillar stone family. Emerald is mixed with chromium to give it a shiny and bright patina.
