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.
The combination of Emerald and a shimmering Mica matrix throughout this specimen has a remarkably eye-catching effect. The shape of the specimen is balanced and the color ranges from a rich, deep Emerald green to an intensely shimmering jet black Mica. This specimen comes with a gorgeous burgundy wooden base specifically fitted to the Emerald piece, and sits at 15 cm high, 14 cm wide, and 10 cm deep. This specimen would make an excellent gift, or a naturally sophisticated office/home decor item!
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!
