Geologists who start with millions of years have a hard time explaining the following: how the right chemicals and unlikely conditions needed to form emeralds came together at just the right time. Well, that’s because they ignore the Bible’s history!

The relatively rare ingredients needed to form emeralds are found in different types of rocks. They find each other as they’re transported and mixed together by hot water. These conditions could only be met during major earth movements—and rising waters—during mountain building.

Well, the Flood of Noah’s day provides the perfect scenario for this to happen. Emeralds should remind us of God creating beauty from ashes.
