I am happy with the stone for the price, but there are numerous inclusions so the picture does not match the stone or has been photoshopped.

Clarity. Very minor/tiny pinpoint/sparkle. Visible in one position, barely in another, looks as microscopic sparkle in third, invisible in fourth Exceptional transparency.
Picture. This is nice picture, but... But first Picture part macro suggested by my assistant. Altered color, no depth, no inner glow. And now “but.” Picture shows quite bright stone but compare to the real one it is faded, washy lifeless rock. This stone is the ultimate brightness. Actually I need just one word for description – dazzling. Dazzlingly bright color, dazzling sparkling glow, dazzling brilliance. Of course it is way too much for a picture.
Stone. Dazzling top stone!

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 (ES Gems) 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.
