Gemstone emeralds of Colombian origin are considered the best. The so-called “emerald mafia” is widely known in Colombia and controls all the market there, so most Colombian stones are exported illegally. Most of the gemstone emeralds are mined in South America, most in Brazil. Brazilian emeralds usually have a light color and look a little bit dull. Emerald precious stones from Zambia are also very valuable on the market. A special category of emeralds is the unique Ural stones, which are mined in the Ural Mountains in Russia.
