Bracelet with a smooth oval Emerald , on a spread root pattern surface as a result of soil erosion. If you take in consideration what a Monsoon climate in tropical rainforests establish, where a drier part of the year alternates with a wet period, different species of trees dominate the forest, whereby the roots come undone to gather water, to expand, contributing to a greener planet. The green of an Emerald reminds me of this natural cicle.
All sterling silver, handmade. The large surface where the Emerald has been set was carved and then cast.
Actually Emerald is the precious green variety of the mineral Beryl. Emerald takes shape in granite and pegmatite rock, taking its colour from the additional chromium and vanadium atoms. Emerald green, the range of colours goes from milky grass green to the richest of transparents greens like deep woods in springtime. Mined in Egypt 4,000 years ago, today the best beryl comes from Colombia and Brasil.
Most emeralds have inclusions (bubbles) in them. If the stone has too much blue in it, it is then an aquamarine. Pink beryl is Morganite, yellow beryl is golden beryl, yellow-green beryl is heliodor. There is also a rare red beryl.
Emerald is May's birthstone.
