The emerald is a notable gem throughout the past and in modern times. As one of the three precious stones, it leaves onlookers green with envy. Emeralds have a special place with royalty over history, as they were said to be one of Cleopatra’s favorite gems. These green beauties were mined as early as 330 B.C. in Egypt and continue to be in heavily mined in countries such as Zambia and Columbia.
