Colombian emeralds have a history that dates back long before the Spanish Conquistadors arrived in South America in the 16th century and started trading the gems with the Indian Moghuls. Zambian emeralds are much younger, discovered in the 1920s, but not properly mined until the 1970s. And they soon gained popularity for their incredible colour and quality. In fact, Zambian emeralds are said to have a cooler, more bluish green colour and fewer inclusions than Colombian emeralds.
