Gemological point: Emerald has natural inclusions called “gardens”. This variety of beryl is, most of the time, filled with small frosts composed of water, this is due to its origin either calcareous or micashist, in rocks or veins rich in chromium (giving it its color) and in beryllium (giving it its structure). It is therefore quite common to find these inclusions in this particular stone.
Tip: Emerald has a hardness of 7.5, it is one of the most resistant gemstones along with sapphire (9), ruby (9) and diamond (10). To wash it, a simple bath in water and washing-up liquid is sufficient to remove dust. It is not advisable to use an ultra-sound bath.
