The word “Emerald” is derived via Old French: Esmeraude and Middle English: Emeraude, from Vulgar Latin: Esmaralda/Esmaraldus, a variant of Latin Smaragdus, which originated in Greek: “green gem”
Lab-Created or synthetic Emeralds are the best substitute of natural green emeralds, they are purely flawless and not expensive like natural emeralds and possible to make in variety of shapes and in any quantity.

Process of making created emerald
Lab-created or synthetic emerald material are created by placing a beryl seed in a sealed, pressurized container.  The container is filled with extremely pure water.  A nutrient containing crushed emerald and other compounds such as vanadium and chromium is introduced into the hydrothermal environment and an electrical charge is passed through the chamber to ionize the environment and the unit is slowly heated in an autoclave.  As the heat and pressure build in the sealed environment, to about 1800 degrees Fahrenheit and 800psi, the environment reaches equilibrium and the molecular de-stasis process begins.  Molecules of the nutrient are stripped away and are attracted to and reform on the larger and more solid emerald seed. These crystals grow at a rate of approximately 0.15mm per day, so a large crystal takes many weeks to form.  Once the crystal are form they are use to cut in different shapes and sizes.
