Emerald green is vibrant and fresh and most likely accounts for it's popularity from antiquity to current times. Emeralds have long been a presence in popular culture - from movies to books, even videogames - it is a stone most people could identify without any previous knowledge of gemstones. Emeralds are found around the world, but are most commonly produced out of Colombia and Zambia.
