Emerald is one of the big three colored gemstones, alongside sapphire and ruby. Emeralds come in a variety of green tones ranging from yellowish-green to bluish-green, and often have a satiny "glowing" appearance in the light. Tiny inclusions in the stone actually help create this glowing satin effect. The finest emeralds were historically mined in Colombia, but today many high grade stones are also found in Zambia and Brazil, among other places. Emerald is the birthstone for May.

Peridot is a lighter green gemstone that can range from neon to olive tones. Peridot has been growing in popularity in recent years as green stones are becoming more highly prized, especially in Asia. It is also an interesting gemstone because it has the rare honor of being found not only in the Earth's crust, but also in some meteorites! Peridot is the birthstone for August.
