A brief history of Colombian emeralds.
For over 4,000 years Colombia has been home to the worldâ€™s finest emeralds. Today, Colombia still accounts for between 70 to 90% of the worldâ€™s emerald supply. Geologically speaking, Colombian emeralds are found in sedimentary rocks rather than igneous resulting in a fine green colour with excellent transparency. While all natural emeralds will have inclusions, a fine quality Colombian emerald will have less than those from other countries as well as excellent transparency allowing you to see right through the stone. Combine this with an intense green, and it is easy to see why Colombian emeralds have been regarded so highly throughout the ages.
