Russian emeralds have long. . .
Russian emeralds have long been prized for their breathtaking crystal clarity, fire and deep, forest green hues. Believed to have been discovered in 1830 in the roots of a fallen tree near Yekaterinburg in Russia’s Ural Mountains, these gems are legendary. It is said that they may have been mined long before the Spaniards discovered the famous Colombian emerald fields in the late 16th century. Their popularity rose in the 19th century, but their production came to a halt after World War I, when the largest and best-known source of Russian emeralds, the Mariinsky (St. Mary’s) Mine, became a military security zone. As a result, Russian emeralds are a must-have for any true emerald connoisseur.
