*** Emerald is considered a “Type III” gemstone, which means these gems are virtually always included to some degree. Because of this designation, a clarity grade of “very slightly included is the normal range for emeralds. Well over 90% to 99% of the emeralds in commerce have been treated to minimize the appearance of the inclusions.
Emerald inclusions pose more than aesthetic considerations, however. Although emeralds, like other beryls, have a high hardness rating, they are more fragile than other beryls. (A high Moh’s rating doesn’t mean a stone is indestructible. It simply means the stone is more resistant to scratching). Their inclusions reduce their structural integrity. Emerald jewelry must be treated gently.
Special Care Instructions Emeralds usually have internal fracutres, so clean with warm or room temperature soap and water. Avoid wearing gem where it will get rough treatment.
