Emerald mineralization area near the Urdina Lakes, in the north-western part of the Rhodopes. A Proterozoic metamorphic rock sequence, which consists of micaceous and amphibole-biotite gneisses, amphibolites, and marbles with small lenticular bodies of serpentinized ultramafic rocks, locally altered to amphibole-chlorite and talc-chlorite schists. The metamorphic rocks ae cut by granite pegmatites.
in the form of well-shaped prismatic crystals, 0.4 to 1.5 cm long have been found only in the phlogopite-oligoclase bodies. The density is 2.694 g/cm³.
Bluish green and light green almost colourless beryls
, and lesser amounts of fuchsite
, fine-scaly muscovite
and fine-grained quartz
occur with the emerald
