Emerald (पन्ना )

Emerald is a green gemstone associated with the planet Mercury. A gemstone is referred to as “Green Beryl” if its green hue is extremely pale; only deeper green tones are considered “Emerald.” The green to greenish blue variant of the mineral beryl is known as emerald. In Hindi, emerald stone is referred to as “Panna.” Emerald is a wise stone that improves memory and fosters mental clarity. A fine and high-quality emerald has a great degree of clarity and a pure, vivid green tone. Three different inclusion types are often seen in emeralds: gaseous bubbles, liquid films, and solid crystals. Inclusions are present in almost 99% of emeralds. Because they are so uncommon, pure and clear emeralds are extremely expensive. The earliest recorded emerald mines date back to around 330 BC and were located in Egypt. Colombia is now the world’s leading producer and supplier of emeralds.
