Clarity in Natural Emeralds

Clarity in emeralds differs from other gems. Separate from diamond clarity grades, the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) categorizes three clarity types for colored gems:

Type I gemstones, often virtually inclusion-free, such as aquamarine, citrine, topaz and green tourmaline.

Type II gemstones, usually included, such as ruby, sapphire, garnet, peridot, amethyst and spinel.

Type III gemstones, almost always included, such as emerald and red tourmaline.

As type III gems, emeralds are the only major gemstone expected to have visible inclusions; in fact, any specimen without them is immediately suspect as a synthetic or an imitation. Still, inclusions do affect price. If all other factors are equal, the natural emerald with the fewest inclusions is the most valuable.
