Zambia is one of the key emerald mining countries in the world. The other countries in are Zimbabwe, Brazil, Colombia and the US. The mining industry in Zambia is responsible for producing a number of different types of precious stones such as garnets, amethysts and beryls, and these are significant for the growth of the country.
Zimbabwe is another key miner of emerald which has been producing emeralds from last 40 years, since the mines of Sandawana was discovered. These emeralds are mostly of high chromium content and smaller in size. The Zambian emerald fetched up to US$200 million per year but the mining sector has been caught up in a number of controversies.

Out of twenty-one precious stones - nineteen were sold with an average price of US$ 3.05 per carat. These were mined from Zambia’s Kagem Mining Ltd., which is 75 per cent owned by Gemfields (owned 100 per cent by the Pallinghurst).
About 31 companies placed bids on these emeralds. Gemfields have generated up to US$506 million of revenues from twenty-seven auctions of Kagem emeralds, since 2009. Another auction was held in May 2018, which garnered record price for these precious stones.
Christie’s New York Magnificent Jewels sale offers a number of expensive gems and rare luxury items such as crafts, arts, painting and decorative objects. These auctions generate funds for philanthropic causes. In June, the Magnificent Jewel Auction was held which featured jewels made up of diamonds and sapphires (yellow sapphires and emerald).

Some of the Zimbabwean mines were idle from some years, and the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation invited 151 investors to the six mines owned by the state to design proper utilization of the resources. There are more than 20 mines in the region but only a few are operational due to lack of resources. Some of the unexplored mines in Mozambique and South Africa are yet to be studied.
