While buying high-grade gemstones, one of the most common factors that contribute to the final decision is the kind of inclusions in the gemstones, and whether they can be seen with the naked eye.
Emeralds are stunning gemstones in Fayetteville, NC, and at other locations without a doubt, however, these spectacular gemstones almost always come with inclusions, which are known as the “Jardin” – a French word which means a garden. They are called “Jardin” as the inclusion often seems mossy or like light branches. Even a high-quality emerald will have inclusions, which occur due to the trapped gas bubbles, minerals, liquid, or some crystals, which have been trapped since the time of the stone’s formation centuries ago.
While pieces of diamond jewelry in Fayetteville, NC, can be expected to be priced lower due to extensive inclusion, the same does not hold for emeralds; rather, inclusions are quite welcome for premium quality stones and do not detract from the overall price of the gemstones. Emeralds belong to the Type III category of gemstones, which means that there are almost always inclusions for such stones; red tourmaline is another Type III category gemstones.
All emerald inclusions are exclusive, like the fingerprint of a person; Columbian emeralds are generally known to have inclusions, with pointed ends and an elongated and thin body. The inclusion can be a detractor for emeralds, only when they are simply too many, and not too far beneath the surface of the stones. This means that the gemstones can crack or split if they are too close to the surface with regular wear and tear, as is common with daily wear pieces.
Emeralds are stunning stones and much sought after for centuries for unique and exceptional custom design jewelry in Fayetteville, NC, and the surrounding areas.
