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. Very small to tiny pinpoint on the edge slightly visible in only one position. Exceptional nearly “absolute” transparency.

Picture. My main concern is a trademark of our photographer - exaggerated brilliance. These reflections, reflections of reflections, etc. make a crown thick and reduce transparency - or the area of visible transparency. The stone has an Ideal Polish and its brilliance is extraordinary but transparency is more important. Dark, nearly black shadows/spots are neither new nor uncommon, but it doesn’t make them attractive. But all in all, for the picture of emerald it is not bad.

Stone. Gorgeous clean and incredibly transparent stone of the exceptional bright and so much glowing color!

This stone is near the top of Lower Fine Grade. According to Gem World International (Bible of every jeweler, gem dealer and serious buyer and the only realistic price list in the world. Their values were used in numerous legal cases around the world) price for this stone would be around $3,000 per ct. At gem shows I sell similar stones for $1,800/ct. As virtually all Fixed Price listings on eBay and here on Gemrock this one is promotional and the price per ct is ridiculously low - $1,300 per ct.

GIA certificate is available upon request, but frankly I don’t know why some may want it if a stone is emerald (or tanzanite). Any not only gemologist but experienced dealer needs just a brief look to say if a stone natural or synthetic or diffused. Colorless oil (colored oil too unfortunately too, but if you will not buy stones from India you have nothing to worry about) is mandatory treatment. Synthetic resins/polymers are easily recognized.
