Jade Gemstone


Emerald is the most famous and well known green gemstone and at the same time the most exclusive due to its high quality, hardness and limited supply. It has a great value in the market, mainly those coming from Colombia, whose greenish tone is 100% pure and has no yellow reflections in its structure. The most valued green stones are those extracted from the Muso mine.

The green reflected by the emerald has been compared to the color of the Colombian jungle. Other countries such as Brazil, Zambia, Russia, Afghanistan and South Africa are also producers of very good emeralds. At Albert Hern you can find several options of this green gemstone used in rings, bracelets and earrings.


For a long time peridot was confused with emerald, because there was not the information we have today about the green gemstone table.  This gem is very attractive, thanks to the combination of yellow and golden reflections on the green that make it really beautiful.

It can be a dark green or light green gemstone, depending on the amount of iron it contains. They are truly amazing when exposed to light, and their most common use in jewelry is in rings and earrings like these.


They can be verdelite or chrome depending on their chemical composition. The chrome ones usually have an intense green color, produced by the traces of chromium and vanadium they may contain.

Tourmaline is said to be one of the most used green gems for healing, for supposedly having activating qualities for prosperity. It is said to be an ally for heart issues, which is why it is so popularly known.


Jade is the most durable gemstone of all, able to withstand any blow or pressure without breaking.

Green Diamond

Green in diamonds is one of the rarest and most difficult colors to obtain today, making it extremely expensive in value.  This green gemstone arises from the combination of hydrogen and nickel in the diamond's crystalline structure or from defects caused by irradiation in its subway formation process.
