Two answers to the question I receive a few times per week:

Question: Can you show me a few more pictures?

Answer one: All listed stones are in hands of my assistant that ships them. Depends on the time of the year I am either 300 miles or 3,000 miles away from her. She takes pictures for certificates using camera in her cell phone under the kitchen light. If you are a producer of horror movies I can ask her to take a few pictures but please don’t show them to your children: poor kids will have a nervous breakdown.

Answer two: In 40+ years I didn’t see a single BOTH good and realistic picture of the stone if it was emerald. For the reason I don’t quite understand emerald is a stone that “doesn’t want to be photographed” (it doesn’t apply to any other stone). I take about 100 pictures of each stone, give them to my assistant to choose (I don’t have enough willpower to look at my results) and I am lucky if she doesn’t say: “I cannot use any picture from your nightmarish set.” Finally we found a photographer who agreed to take pictures for us (two before him tried and run away in horror) but his pictures when good are usually artistic-surrealistic interpretation. Nothing will replace seeing a stone in person and again - we refund immediately no questions asked.

My partner and I have a registered in NY State business that includes gemological lab and for eBay we certify our stones. I’ll post certificates here too (unless a stone is certified by GIA or AGL).

Please note that emerald is Type 3 stone (most included and is considered to be always included. Its clarity grade tops at VVS, (not FL, IF or even IF-VVS) which according to GIA is barely equal to SI2 of Type 1 stone.

It is a picture of our photographer. He is a great professional but never photographed emeralds until we hired him. Pretty soon he learned (the hard way) that:

  1. Emeralds don’t want to be be photographed and attempts are punishable – by pictures that will cause a nervous breakdown.

  2. Many emeralds cannot be photographed at all (usually the best. I never even tried and sold them to private clients without pictures and at gem shows).

  3. One of the most important properties of the emeralds is inner glow, which is light and cannot be photographed. Photographer has a choice between dull lifeless rock and total discoloration.

But he was a professional and found a way. Three of them actually.

  1. Masterpiece of a great post-impressionist artist showing surrealistic narcotic hallucinations of an alien from the remote galaxy.

  2. Something very artistic. Nobody including him knows what it is, but picture contains photographer’s message: “Of course it is not an emerald… or anything. But look at the skills and vision of the true master!”

  3. More or less realistic. Glow is substituted by exaggerated brilliance for which he used myriads of strategically placed lights.

This is number 3 fortunately. I would prefer (rarer luck) what I call “convincing discoloration” when discoloration more or less successfully simulates inner glow.

Stone. Gorgeous perfectly clean, exceptionally transparent, brilliant and glowing top stone of the beautiful color!
