Colombian Versus Zambian
For decades, emerald lovers have debated the merits of this stone from its two leading sources. Emeralds have been known in South American ages before the Spanish conquest. Zambian gems are a more recent discovery, going back to 1940’s.
It’s commonly believed that Colombian stones are a warmer, more intense green. Meanwhile, Zambian examples are supposed to be cooler, with bluer hues present within the gem. Truth be told, gems from either location can display these desirable qualities.
