Therefore, it is very, very difficult to find nearly eye flawless emeralds, but these are the best for Jyotish. The rule is clarity first, then as much color as your budget will allow. Emeralds with top clarity and light color are far better than those with more inclusions and darker color. Clarity first and foremost! Buy the clearest emeralds possible.

Beware: Avoid heavily treated emeralds. Some experts can determine the level of the treatment as minor, moderate or heavy. Minor treatment is OK. Be very careful of hidden cracks that can affect the durability of the emerald during setting, and after while wearing, especially in the corners. Do not buy Emeralds with black inclusions.

All gemstones are not equal. The type and quality of the gemstones listed above have been found to be the safest and most effective for best results. The better the quality, the better and purer the effect the gemstone will have on the person who wears it.
