Emerald, the birthstone of May, belongs to the beryl mineral family. The green color is caused by trace amounts of chromium. It has a Mohs hardness of 7.5–8. I personally bought our emeralds in Colombia. They have not been treated in anyway.
Silver has antibiotic properties, it has the highest electrical conductivity of any metal, and of course, silver is incredibly malleable and polishes to a lustrous shine, making it ideal for jewelry.
Jewelry has traditionally been made of Sterling silver, composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. This metal mixture, or alloy, maintains its form better than the relatively soft pure silver, doesn’t tarnish as easily, and has a higher melting point, making it good for tea pots and cookware as well.
