Origin of the stone of love and knowledge.
For decades, Zambia for the African continent, and Colombia and Brazil for America, have owned the podium. There are different arguments regarding the quality, cut types and colour of their gems.
The first contender, Zambia, exports between 12% and 18% of the emeralds to the international market, leaving in the hands of lovers of these precious stones, gems that are lighter and more translucent than those provided by Brazil or Colombia. Experts agree that Zambian emeralds show fewer inclusions known as ‘garden’, and that carvings or cuts are very good quality in Africa.
According to a statement from the National Federation of Colombian Emeralds (Fedesmeraldas in Spanish), commercial alliances with countries such as China and India placed the Colombian emerald above its main competitors (Brazil and Zambia).
This means that Colombia occupies first place with exports over 142 million dollars during 2019–2020. Hopefully, and with the rebound in mining activity in Muzo Boyacá, Colombia wins the quality battle against Brazil and Zambia; and Colonial Gemstones brings you the best emeralds in the world, directly from the mines to your hands!
