ZAMBIAN EMERALDS: known for their rich green color mixed with a blue tinge, these emeralds are some of the most popular (along with Columbian emeralds). Emeralds are one of the four "precious" gemstones (along with diamonds, rubies, and sapphires), and are the green version of the Beryl family of gemstones (morganite, aquamarine, etc.). They have been documented as being used as far back as approximately 4000 BC in Babylon. Emeralds were worshipped by the Incas, and in prominent use throughout Ancient Egypt, by Alexander the Great, Aristotle, and the moguls of India.

APATITE is a semiprecious gemstone within the group of phosphate minerals - these are from Madagascar. It is a stone that many use in meditation as it is believed to aid in intellect and concentration.
