As per the records, emeralds were first discovered about 4,000 years ago in Egypt. It is a variety of the mineral beryl. Most emeralds are highly included and it is extremely hard to find “clean” emeralds. As Gemfields describes “unlike most gemstones, the mineralisation of emeralds can only happen when two different rock types with contrasting characteristics under unique conditions come into contact with one another, which makes it one of the rarest gemstones. For Zambian emeralds, it was the specific combination of the 1.6 billion year-old high-grade metamorphic rock named the Talc Magnetite Schist and the younger 500 million year old intruding pegmatite.” The result is a rich and saturated green color, from bright green with yellowish undertones to a vibrant green with bluish undertones.
Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.
