Reply To: The classification of emeralds

Profile photo of jrasmussen

Emerald is “grass green.” In these pictures, neither one is “grass green.” I would classify them as being greenish blue beryl. I don’t believe that either name “aquamarine” or “emerald” should apply to these stones. If I was evaluating them for a customer, I would not use the term emerald for either one.
