As a variety of the mineral beryl the emerald is a gemstone that is colored green and contains trace amounts of chromium and vanadium.Its name derives from the ancient Greek word "smaragdos" which means "green gem".Although mined since 1500 BCE in ancient Egypt the largest producer of emeralds is Colombia with 50-95% of the world production.

Time has not been kind to this cinemascope curio from 1954 that did good box office business back then. Granger and Kelly, neither of whom qualify among my favorite actors are the stars. Granger was always too stoic for me. The man couldn't act and Kelly too cold and imitating other actors instead of giving her own performance. This movie involves the search for "green fire" the name for some jewels and involves a rival team that is trying to use Granger to find the jewels and intercept it from him, once found. Kelly is a white girl in the land with a plantation. That about wraps it up. The love story is staid and the action sequences dull, even in cinemascope. I am told I must write at least ten lines so this should do it.
