Emerald refers to green beryl, colored by trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium.[ ][ 1] The word “emerald” comes (via Middle English: Emeraude, imported from Old French: Ésmeraude and Medieval Latin: Esmaraldus) from Latin smaragdus from Greek smaragdos – σμάραγδος (“green gem”), its original source being a Semitic word izmargad (אזמרגד) or the Sanskrit word, marakata (मरकन), meaning “green”.[12] Most emeralds are highly included, so their brittleness (resistance to breakage) is classified as generally poor.

A trapiche emerald exhibits a “star” pattern; it has raylike spokes of dark carbon impurities that give the emerald a six-pointed radial pattern. It is named for the trapiche, a grinding wheel used to process sugarcane in the region. Colombian emeralds are generally the most prized due to their transparency and fire. Some of the most rare emeralds come from three main emerald mining areas in Colombia: Muzo, Coscuez, and Chivor.

In 1998, emeralds were discovered in the Yukon
