The emeralds belong to the aluminum silicate of beryl that crystallizes in the hexagonal system.

The value of the emerald depends on the following factors:

COLOR OR TONE: The most appealing are the bluish greens with saturation of bright colors; subtly lower color are also very desirable.

PURITY OR TRANSPARENCY: Unlike other gemstones, it is not uncommon for very fine emeralds to have inclusions.

LIFE OR BRIGHTNESS: They are the sparkles emitted by transparent emeralds, this is the main property of the Colombian emeralds, which differentiate them from the emeralds of Zambia and Brazil, for which they became the most beautiful in the world.

SHAPE AND SIZE: Not only color, purity and shine depends on the price of emeralds but on the shape and size and even the very good size. So much so, that the most commercial and valuable are the square and a little rectangular also called emerald carving. The most valuable emeralds come from the mines of Muzo, Chivor, Gachalá, Coscuez, Peñas Blancas and La Pita although there are many other cuts in the emerald zone of Boyacá and Cundinamarca.
