MAY BIRTHSTONE: Emerald
The birthstone for May is the gorgeous Emerald. Columbia produces the largest and highest quality of emeralds and they can come in all different shapes, sizes and shades.
You’ll notice that an emeralds colour can vary from light to deep green and the colour comes from the presence of chromium and/or vanadium in the stone. However, if an emerald is strongly heated, it can lose it’s colour.
