Swat Panna Stone is like all coloured gemstone. We can say that there is four type of gems find Color, Cut, Clarity and Crystal. Emerald (Be3Al2Si6O18) is the grass-green type of Beryl. The formation of emerald involves a natural process known as exometamorphism.
traditional gemstone for the astrological signs of Taurus, Cancer and sometimes Gemini. One of the quainter anecdotes on emeralds was by the 16th-century historian Brantôme, who referred to the many impressive emeralds the Spanish under Cortez had brought back to Europe from Latin America.
This gives the rock its gemlike green color. Varying amount of iron also alters the color of the rock. It has a hardness of 7.5-8 and a refractive index of 1.57-1.59. However it is not a gem recommended for 'everyday' use since it falls in the category of soft stone.
A chemical analysis shows that chromium (which is the cause of the green of emerald) and iron are prominent constituents in Swat emeralds. The presence of relatively high iron content means that the emeralds from Swat do not show so red a fluresence as some other emeralds as iron acts as a fluresence quencher.
The cut of the stone is also significant. Emerald can have round, pear, oval shapes the emerald cut, that is, octagonal shape is most preferred. Inclusions are almost an accepted fact in emeralds.
Deposits of the stone are also found in other parts of the world such as in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Madagascar and Nigeria. However Columbia and Brazil are the leading producers of emerald today. The mines of Egypt, which supplied emeralds to Cleopatra, are not much into production today. Among the foremost consumers of emerald are USA and Japan who buy 75% of the world's cut emerald.
Color is divided into three components: hue, saturation and tone. the hue must be bright. Gray is the normal saturation modifier or mask found in emerald. A grayish green hue is a dull green.
Brazil has been supplying emerald to the world market since the 1980s. Typical Brazilian emeralds are lighter and yellowish. Emeralds from Zimbabwe are smaller is size and lighter in shade. However the term 'African emerald' is a misnomer. It simply denotes green fluorite.
