The May Birthstone

Emerald is the birthstone for the month of May.  Happy birthday to all the emerald May babies!

Emerald is found in the Southern hemisphere, primarily in two locations. The African stones are a bluer hue and typically contain black chromite inclusions. The Colombian / Brazilian stones span the borders of the two countries and more often contain White Calcite inclusions. Both typically have a “Jardin” or “garden” of flaws. Emerald is a gem from Biblical times and continues to remain popular today.
