Colombian Emerald Gems

Prices of Colombian emeralds vary from $1,000 to $15,000 per carat. The value of an emerald is influenced by various parameters such as its origin, carat, colour shade, and the oil treatment it receives.

Bluish-green colour is the most sought after emerald shade. It is also popular for its vivid saturation. Known as Vivid Green with Muzo Green Emerald being the legendary colour shade found in the world renowned Muzo mines.

Oil treatment of emeralds is a common enhancement on emerald gemstone. Emeralds contain natural inclusions or fractures like embedded crystals and veils, which can make them appear opaque or cloudy. Emeralds are oiled for enhancing their overall appearance. Primarily, cedarwood oil is used for filling tiny fissures from the surface to internal inclusion. This process significantly enhances the colour and clarity of the emerald.

Oil Treatment

Usually, high-pressure oil is forced into the emerald based on the degree of filling. Getting quality emeralds that have not undergone any treatment is simply next to impossible. About 98% and above of emeralds available in the market are oil-treated. Small percentage of emeralds are insignificant to minor oil as they have less surface-reaching fissures and natural inclusion.

We at GIOIA Fine Jewellery actively source the finest emeralds available in the world, which undergo minor to no oil treatment.
