Known for its vivid forest green color, emerald is the most valuable form of the mineral beryl. Emerald is a hard material, rating a 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale.


Alexandrite is a rare color-changing variety of the mineral chrysoberyl that can appear bluish-green in natural or fluorescent light, and brownish or purple-red in incandescent light.
