Physical Characteristics
Emerald (Be3Al2Si6O18) occurs most often in mica schist's of metamorphic-hydrothermal origin wherein the schist's and other associated host rocks formed by chemical interaction between granites rocks or pegmatite's and the enclosing basic (silica-deficient) rocks. The chemical ingredients necessary for the formation of beryl frequently migrate from the granitic material into the adjoining basic rocks where the beryl crystallizes, changing the original basic rock composition through the process known as exometamorphism. If the basic rocks contain the elements chromium or vanadium, small amounts of these elements may be incorporated into the beryl structure thereby giving the intense green colour characteristic of the gem beryl variety emerald. Associated minerals in these deposits are dolomite, pyrite, calcite, quartz and albite. Group SILICATES, Composition Be3Al2Si6O18, Hardness 7.5, Crystal structure HEXAGONAL.
