Green Sapphire Vs Emerald

07 Jan, 2021 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

The Emerald gemstones are more rich green in color and much costlier than green sapphires. The shape of Sapphire gemstone is trigonal whereas Emerald gemstones are hexagonal. Sapphire could be cut into a different type of shapes but emerald could be cut into very reserved shapes. The Sapphire gemstones are associated with the corundum mineral family, whereas Emeralds are from the family of beryl mineral. Some of the difference between green sapphire and emerald are as follow:

Color: The Sapphire gemstone popularly comes in pink, blue, and salmon color while the best quality Emerald gemstone comes in bluish-green color.

Hardness: The sapphire gemstone is very strong and weighs 9 on the Mohs scale but on the other hand emerald weighs 7.5 to 8 on the same scale.

Symbolism: The Sapphire gemstone is the synonym of royalty, luxury, and romance but Emerald symbolizes abundance, peace, and rebirth.

Evaluation: The price of Sapphire gemstone can go beyond $ 10000 per carat whereas the price of emerald gemstone could start from $ 5000.

Treatments: Nearly 95% of Sapphire gemstones are given heat-treatment to enhance their color and increase clearness. Almost all the Emeralds are given treatment to enhance their clarity.

Clearness: In Sapphire inclusions/flaws are very common but can’t be seen by naked eyes. In emeralds inclusions/flaws are eye-visible.

Affordability: The Sapphire which is natural and untreated is very rare and expensive but in Emerald only fine gemstones are expensive.

Outcome: Faultless Sapphires and Emeralds also occur, but they are exceptionally rare and are too much costly. However, with sapphire gemstones, you have a choice to pick them from multiple gorgeous colors. Sapphire which is Blue and salmon-colored is the most famous colors and for this reason, they are very expensive too. Lastly, it comes to your individual choices. The Emeralds and Sapphire gemstone both are priceless and you will forever relish these treasures.
