Color: Slightly bluish or yellowish green. Deeper green is more powerful, but do not sacrifice clarity for color.
Clarity: Emeralds are the most heavily flawed Jyotish gemstone. Emeralds are designated "type three" in clarity, the only Jyotish gemstone in this class. Chromium, the mineral that makes Emeralds green also makes them flawed.
Therefore, it is very, very difficult to find nearly eye-flawless Emeralds, but these are the best for Jyotish. The rule is clarity first, then as much color as your budget will allow. Emeralds with top clarity and light color are far better than those with more inclusions and darker color. Clarity first and foremost! Buy the clearest Emeralds possible. Called 'crystal' in the trade, super clean Emeralds from Colombia and Brazil are acceptable, as are some Zambian Emeralds, if not too dark in the crystal.
Shape: Emerald cut, oval, cushion, round.
Size: 2.00 carats and larger. If exceptional in color and clarity, then smaller is OK: Minimum 1.00 carat.
Enhancements: Virtually all Emeralds are "oiled" with oil or synthetic resins. We buy the cleanest, most flawless emeralds we can find. We search the entire world for Emeralds with the clarity that we sell. Our expertise allows us to evaluate the level of oil treatment used.
Beware: Avoid heavily treated Emeralds. Minor treatment is OK. Be very careful of hidden cracks that can affect the durability of the Emerald during setting, and after while wearing, especially in the corners. Do not buy Emeralds with black inclusions.
Bypass the limitations of digital photography: We can arrange for any gemstone to be sent to you to see in person before you purchase it.
