CLARITY

Carat Weight>> Clarity>> Color>> Cut>>

In emeralds differs from others, as Type III gems, emerald are the only major gemstone expected to have visible inclusions; in fact, any specimen without them is immediately suspect as a synthetic or an imitation.

Clarity is measured using a jeweler's loupe (a small magnifying glass used to view gemstones) under 10-power magnification. Because each emerald forms under its own, unique circumstances, each individual gemstone is comprised of a combination of trace minerals, which lend a precise color as well as unique identifying marks or inclusions.

"Jardin" or "gardens" are natural inclusions you see in all the Emeralds, at naked eye or with magnification, this allow emeralds show the mistery and beauty of the most desire gemstone in the history. The wondelful gardens are the birthmark of emeralds that make differ of Natural Emeralds to sinthetic emeralds. There is not two Emerald internal gardens that match.

The best clarity for emeralds is VVS or i1, minute inclusions to 10x and fine emeralds can start with SI1or i4 clarity scale.

The best clarity let brilliance and live, Clarity is main factor in Emerald Quality. And emerald with good color, cut, carat weight need good clarity to bring live and fire, without will appear to eye very opaque..The poor Clarity could represent durability problems, you must be careful of fissures, or inclusions that reach the surface of the stone, mainly in the table of the Emerald. You most see the score of Polish, if it is fair or poor avoid this emerald.
