    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.


    Important Notice: PayPal announced its new policy: Starting May 9, 2019 in case of returns it would not refunds its fees (about 5%). Please contact us about payment options. Thank you.

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.  


 We ship internationally by Registered Mail for $29.95. You can ask about other shipping methods both domestically (regular USPS is $6.95) and internationally.

Clarity. A couple of minor/very minor dots/pinpoints on the very side-edge visible in only one position face up; extremely high “crystal type” transparency.

Picture. A little blurry especially edges (which is unusual for our photographer: he is a pro) and nothing is shown. Altered color, no richness, no depth and of course no inner glow. Well, my claims probably are unfair. As usual the color is altered (which is always altered thanks to camera’s filters), 2-dimensional picture cannot show 3-dimensional depth and as usual my main claim – no inner glow is unfair. Glow is a light that can’t be photographed. The real stone has a magnificent color and extremely intensive iridescent inner glow!

Stone. According to my partner I am a clarity obsessed maniac but even more I am glow obsessed maniac. And because of this for me this stone is top or hair away from it (you need to move the stone at least a little bit to appreciate its extremely gorgeous inner glow). Actually it makes color also top or very near top. Splendid stone!
