Yes!, High Quality Emeralds are much rarer than Diamonds.
To get 1/2 carat of Diamond one has to mine and process around 1 tonne of ore whereas to get 1 carat of Emerald one has to mine and process around 5 tonnes of ore so you can assess the ratios.
This data I recalled from the time I was doing my Gemological studies so its from 25 years back so might be off by a minor margin but not much but yes High quality Emeralds are much more rarer than Diamonds.
The Big 3 of the colored Gemstone world are Rubies, Sapphires ( Blue) and Emeralds and out of these 3 if you see the market trends both high quality Rubies and Emeralds today as of May 2018 command a higher market price than White diamonds.
The Only exception to this is Fancy colored Diamonds that are rare in supply and come oft and in between and are in the domain of only the collectors.
