The Green Rush
Carnaiba
By DIOSCURI
10 Jan 2015

Think about the gold rush, but forget about America, cowboys, westerns.
Mines, miners, galleries 200 meters beneath the ground, entrepreneurs, men of faith, and emeralds. Loads of emeralds. This is what the Green Rush is about. The state of Pernambuco, in the Northeast of Brazil, is one of the most important emerald producers in the entire world and here, in the city of Carnaiba, everything revolves around these precious stones.
And if you think that this business is just for few, you might be wrong: here everyone has the possibility to take advantage of this green fever.
A kind of 2.0 version of the New Eldorado, rigorously made in Brazil.
