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.

Garnets come in every color of the rainbow, but reds are the most common. Deep red garnets are what we traditionally think of when we think of garnet, but in today's market many other colors can also be found. Purplish-red rhodolite garnets are particularly popular. But there's also tsavorite garnets with their electric green color that are becoming increasingly popular (and valuable, especially in larger sizes). Garnet is the birthstone for January.
