While Colombia leads the world in emerald production, Zambia is fast making a name for itself in regards to the mining of these precious stones. In recent decades, production of the May birthstone in this part of the world has dramatically picked up in pace as jewelers and consumers alike discover the inherent and distinct beauty of this country’s bluish-green emeralds, which are said by many to rival Colombian emeralds’ distinct deep green in eye appeal.
Emerald engagement rings that feature stones from Zambia are distinct in their coloration. These stones are said to carry colour throughout whereas those from Colombia tend to have a clear core. In addition, Zambian stones tend to be a little less brittle and porous than emeralds mined in other parts of the world, making them a touch stronger naturally.
As the popularity of Zambian emeralds rise, this country is now second only to Colombia in production of these precious stones. Zambian emeralds value is strong, but adding to the distinction of these stones is the fact that emerald prices tend to be lower for those mined here versus those from Colombia. The price difference, however, isn’t due to a quality concern. It lies more in the fact that Colombia is the world’s biggest producer of emeralds. Stones from Colombia simply have tradition on their side when prices are set.
Fast Facts About Zambian Emeralds

- Their strength – These precious stones rate between a 7.5 and 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness. That puts them just behind a ruby or sapphire’s 9 and a diamond’s 10.
