Attributes Of An Emerald Stone(gem) that will change your life.

Some stones proof worthless while other have ascended the ladder of great value.Precious stones(Gems) as they are called,have great cushion and reputation based on their distinct and rare qualities.

"Emerald" is a word derived from Old French: Esmeraude and middle English: Emeraud),vulgar Latin:Esmeralda,which originated from Greek σμάραγδος (smaragdos;- meaning "green gem").Emeralds are green by definition (the name is derived from the Greek word 'smaragdus', meaning green). Emeralds are the green variety of beryl, a mineral which comes in many other colors that are sometimes also used as gems They are graded using four basic parameters–the four Cs: Color,Clarity,Cut, and Crystals.

COLOR:In science colors are divided into three components:Hue,Saturation,and Tones.The hues are the ranges of colors in which it can appear, hue of an emerald should be bright (vivid). A fine stone should be well saturated

CLARITY:Emerald tends to have numerous inclusions and surfaces breaking fissures. Unlike diamond, where the standard 10X magnification, is used to grade clarity, emeralds are graded by eye. Therefore, if an emerald has no visible inclusions to the eye (assuming normal visual acuity) it is considered flawless. Stones that lack surface breaking fissures are extremely rare and therefore almost all emeralds are treated, "oiled", to enhance the apparent clarity.

CUT: Another wonderful quality is that a good Emerald should have a good cut.In a good cut the facet will not overlap and meets lines instead of points.Therefore it reflects light from its facet exposing its sparkle.

CRYSTAL:It simply a synonym for transparency.A fine emerald must possess not only a pure verdant green hue as described above, but also a high degree of transparency to be considered a top gem.

LESSONS:

1.In color a fine emerald retain its true hue representing what it is.An emerald declares its true identity and stand by it.Be your self and not others,Live the life out and well.Its because you are different that's what makes you special.

2.The clarity shows its genuine nature that sometime may need treatment.We all at point may need corrections,teaching,and tutoring,just like the emerald treated with oil to bring out the best in us.It is not for us to me ashamed of our short comings but its good to make monument with the stone of criticism hauled at us.

3. Cut: "In a good cut the facet will not overlap and meets lines instead of points".Our attitudes should be one of great quality.Do the right thing at the right time, at the right place and in the right way.Always be at your best attitude and never forget to keep shinning because the sparkle is in you.

4.Transparency is all the crystal is trying to explain.Honesty creates trust,trust builds fellowship,fellowship foster unity,and unity brings progress.Always let your word represent you, stick to it and stand by it,even if it difficult.And at the end,you will find out that it pays.
