Emerald is a gemstone colored green by chromium and occasionally vanadium. Mica, the matrix that these gemstones are held, is a group of sheet silicate minerals that are monoclinic and include several closely related materials with nearly perfect basal cleavage. Emerald (being a variety of beryl) is a 7.5-8 on the Mohs Scale. Mica also has nearly perfect basal cleavage but sits at just a 2 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, making it one of the softest minerals on the planet.
This remarkable Emerald in Mica specimen has one impressive appearance! The face of the Emerald Mica has been smoothly polished to a reflective shine that truly shows off the incredible patterns and colors throughout the piece. The colors range from a vibrant Emerald green to a shimmering black, and an opaque true black in other portions. All around this piece will make you the envy of every collector!
Emerald is the traditional birthstone for May and is called the "Stone of Successful Love" because it is said to open and nurture the heart; it makes sense that it's associated with the Heart Chakra! The Emerald is considered a very powerful stone in many cultures, being thought of as bringing abundance, prosperity, and good fortune!
