The emerald is considered to be THE green gemstone. Its very name is derived from the old French esmeraude which comes from the Greek “smaragdos”, which means nothing other than “green stone”.

There are also numerous other stones that come in green color varieties. These include sapphire, tourmaline, alexandrite, tsavolite or jadeite, the green variety of jade.
