Emerald inclusions

I need help in analyzing a 4.65 ct emerald, oval shape, strong green color with good transparency. I have doubts when it comes to cracks
(I’m using google translate)

Hi most the emeralds have they own specific formation but some have interference on extraction like Brazil. They use explosives and most of them attack the beryl structure open more cracks and some mine when you are digging on the surface. Comes material too much crack off color. More deep better improve color. Quality. Or some times when cut append appears more cracks also.
