The natural green coloured gemstone emerald, called panna in Hindi, belongs to the beryl mineral family. Due to its rarity and pure green colour, emeralds are extremely valuable gemstones. In Indian Vedic astrology, emerald is one of the most renowned gemstones since it symbolises the planet Mercury (Budh). Emerald is thought to bring prosperity, wisdom, and intelligence into a person's life. Zambia, Colombia, and Brazil are the main sources of emerald stones. Colour, Transparency/Clarity, Lustre, and Origin are the major criteria used to assess emerald quality. Depending on quality, natural emerald gemstone prices (INR) range from a few thousand to lakhs per carat.
