Unlike almost every other gemstone,
natural emeralds contain inclusions or
small deposits of iron, which are not
considered to decrease the value of the
stone. In fact, experts consider the
inclusions to be proof that the stones are
natural and not lab created. Emeralds
are one of the most beautiful and most
popular gemstones on the market
because of their brilliant green color.
