Emerald stone is called ‘Panna’ in Hindi. It belongs to Beryl Species, a mineral species that also includes Aquamarine, Morganite as well as beryls in other colors.
Emerald’s Color ranges from Pure Green to Greenish Blue. Emeralds are formed when chromium, vanadium and iron are present in the mineral beryl. The varying presence of these three elements gives Emerald its range of color. Chromium and Vanadium make an intense green color. Iron gives the stone a bluish tint. Emerald stone is associated with Planet Mercury (Budh). Mercury is associated with Wisdom and Intelligence. Strong Mercury ensures good intelligence, Sharp memory and Clarity of Thoughts. Strong mercury enhances communication and Public Speaking. Strong Mercury helps to excel in the field of Business, Computation, Accounting, Social media or Public relations. Afflicted Mercury can result in low self-esteem, fear of Public Speaking, Stammering, Stage fright or any problem related to public speaking or social gatherings. Weak Mercury also increases chances of being cheated or break in education and career. If you are also suffering from any of the above-mentioned problems, then you must wear Emerald stone.

The Basic principle while choosing a gemstone is to see that the gemstone has Perfect Color and should not have any undesirable inclusions. Every natural Stone has inclusion but the stone, which is worn for astrology should not have any negative inclusions like Black Spots, Knots or Cracks. Emeralds have inherent nature of having Thread-like inclusion, which is acceptable but the Emerald should not have Black-Spot.
