May Birthstone - EmeraldTuesday, May 02, 2017
Emeralds are the most highly prized stone of the Beryl group but finding an Emerald without natural inclusions is rare.
Emeralds tend to have natural inclusions in the stone which makes it usual to treat them with oil or resin to fill the tiny natural cracks.
From personal experience, setting Emeralds are a pain! I can't begin to tell you how many Emeralds I've smashed in the setting process as they can be quite fragile.
Never the less, we do love the colour. Here are a few of the Emerald pieces we have made over the years.
