Another name for this stone is garnet and its green color is more famous and popular among brown, orange, and red colors. Emerald is called the stone of happiness and love and it is used to protect the traveler. Panjsher Emerald (also known as Afghanistan emerald) is one of the finest varieties of emeralds which is found in the Panjsher Valley, Afghanistan.
Emerald has high energy and calms the mind and removes negative energies. Garnet (demantoid) is found in red, orange, brown, and green colors. Among these, the most valuable type of garnets is green. Bright green garnets are more valuable, but lighter colors are often more popular.
These Gemstones are now sold at very high prices in world markets; apparently, this mineral is sent abroad after purchase and after cutting, it is used as a kind of emerald. World fame of this type of garnet is still less known in the country.
