Emerald—Not Just a City in Oz

Historically, emerald has been mined in localities as exotic as Egypt and India, and today, we commonly mine this precious gemstone in the deepest jungles of Columbia and Brazil. Its brilliant green glow is colored by the elements chromium and vanadium, which reside in the chemical structure of the stone. Emeralds are 20 times rarer than diamonds, and their scarcity makes them all the more desirable. Perhaps that's why they were a favorite gem of Cleopatra. In addition, emerald green beads are always breathtaking, and at the Bead Traders, we carry only the most radiant, high-quality emerald beads for classic, sophisticated adornment.
