About Trapiche Emeralds


The name Trapiche comes from grinding wheels used to process sugarcane in Colombia, a region which is known for it’s prized Trapiche Emeralds. Trapiche emeralds display six spoke-like carbon "rays" emanating from a hexagonal center with the areas in between filled with lively emerald green. These rays appear much like asterism, the only difference being that they are fixed and do not move.

 

 

 What Causes Trapiche?


 A Trapiche is the result of the growth of an Emerald Crystal with the darkened impurity of lutite. As the crystal grows in its normal six-sided shape, the darker lutite is pushed to the center of the crystal and then radiates out in the six directions of the corners of the crystal. It is an absolutely amazing natural process that creates an emerald crystal with a six leg "star" of the darker lutite
