The first thing you need to determine if it is indeed an emerald, and the level if treatment it has undergone.
Most emeralds are fairly heavily included. Most emeralds have been fracture filled.

Let us know what you find out about the stone.

This is natural emerald
weight approx 2.5ct
that is 100%

Now I need to find out how good it is
I've been told there is no life in this stone but still want to find more about it

To directly answer your question, "How good is emerald with scratch?"
Not so good.
Dark tone
Heavily included
Essentially no light return
and it's scratched.

Most is said from Barbra:

also:
- cutting is poor (including polishing)
- I am sure it is treated / filled in some heavy way as it looks.

So hope you did not pay to much for it.
