Technical Composition of Emerald
Emeralds consist of silicate of beryllium and aluminum and therefore known to be mineral compound. Its colour varies from deep green to light green. An Emerald's hardness measured on Mohs scale is 7.5 � 8.0. This hardness is considered to be good for the jewellery use. Having such a good hardness, Emerald stone has a durability problem. It's very difficult to find an Emerald without any inclusions or surface reaching fractures. Generally, these fractures and inclusions weaken the gem, causing it to be brittle and making it more prone to breakage. In order to improve appearance, some Emeralds are fracture-filled with resins or any other materials. These treatments are being applied on gem so that appearance can be enhanced but these do not improve the endurance of stone.
Emerald, the gemstone for Mercury, can be worn in a ring made of gold in your little finger. The ring should be immersed in unboiled milk or Ganga water before it is sworn. Offer Lord Vishnu yellow flower and fragrance of incense sticks while chanting mantra for Buddh(Mercury)- Om Bram Brim Braum Sah Buddaya Namah- 108 times to energize the ring. After performing the rituals, it may be worn either on a Wednesday or during Ashlesha, Jyeshtha and Revati Nakshatras.
How to identify a real Emerald?
A real panna stone is fragile and has long lasting properties. Some black blemishes are there on the surface due to incorporation of carbon in it. Due to this characteristic, we are able to concede Emerald. Certain fractures are being seen on the surface of Emerald but it doesn't affect its durability and effectiveness. This stone is extracted from coal mines. Following key points have to be kept in mind while identifying an Emerald :-
- If we place a real Emerald on the eyes, it will provide a cool feeling whereas an ersatz will become warm promptly.
- Radiation of green light will be seen, if we place an Emerald in a glass pot filled with water.
- On an actual Emerald, a drop of water will remain in its shape but on a fake stone it will disperse like water.
Awareness about natural Emerald that we sell
Radiation and reflection :- When an Emerald is immersed into water, it radiates a green light and the colour of the water changes from colourless to green. Put the stone on a white piece of cloth placed in the palm of your hand. When the light falls on the panna gemstone then it produces green coloured reflections but an imitation will not be able to do so.
Temperature :- Place an Emerald onto your eye. If it gives a cooling effect on your eye, it is the original one, but if it gets heated then it's an imitation.
Lustre :- Rub a real Emerald on a piece of soft wood, it will start sparkling. If it's a ersatz then it will remain as it was before rubbing.
Specific gravity and refractive index :- Real Emerald has its own specific gravity and refractive index whereas the fake gemstone will have lesser value of specific gravity and refractive index as comparable to original one.
Colour :- Carefully rub the Emerald against raw turmeric. After a while, the colour of turmeric will change into red whereas the ersatz will not do so.
Drop test :- On a pure Emerald, pour a drop of water. It will persist same as it was dropped on the gem. But it will spread on an imitation.
