Formation of Natural Raw Emerald Stones

Natural emerald takes form in the crust of Earth. The process of making an emerald consists of millions of years. Emerald needs a beryllium atom. Beryllium itself is a rare element. In order to become quality emerald stones, they need perfect specific heat, temperature, and pressure. It happens usually on the deep earth. Emeralds are found in the depth of Earth where there must be the right temperature and pressure. 

Emerald takes formation from 1 molecule in a particular condition. When the hydrothermal liquid comes out of Magma from the Earth's crust, hydrothermal veins takes formation with the help of hot water. Emerald can occur in this condition if it is suitable for it and if there is a beryllium element.
