    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. Following is strictly for the accuracy. In two positions face up you may see tiny to microscopic specks of dust. But even if they were not microscopic, you wouldn’t see them. You would be blinded by unbelievable -  truly dazzling – inner glow of the stone and its no less incredible brightness. If not so intensive glow of the stone I would call its transparency “crystal of the finest water.” But let it stay, it is more important. Actually it is a glow that makes color of the stone Top Grade or at least very near it.

Picture. Slightly not in focus because of the position, also because of the position no clarity and transparency are shown, very bluish color. But my assistant made a right choice (it is her job to choose pictures and post listings) when chose this picture among about 100 ones I usually take. Everybody understands that picture may be slightly out focus but the real stone is not. Nobody needs a picture to understand what means the highest for Type 3 stone clarity grade and many experienced online buyers know that color is always altered. However, picture shows what is never in specifications. It shows how extremely bright the stone is; it shows heavily altered but still great color and how good (by some incredible luck of the photographer) its intensive inner glow - even though by discoloration – is simulated. 

Stone. In case of this stone I don’t know what I could wish else. Top clarity and “over the top” transparency, far exceeding top for emeralds 60% brilliance, Ideal Cut and Polish, dazzling inner glow, exceptionally bright top color… Amazing high-end stone!

A note about value. I don’t pay attention to born in narcotic hallucinations various industry price lists. Not even to price list of International Gem Society even though they are strictly educational institution and I personally know their president and a great gemologist Donald Clark. Well, their prices are real but only if the name of your store is Tiffany.  I refer only to prices of Gem World International – Bible of every jeweler, gem dealer and serious buyer. Their values and expertise were used in numerous legal cases around the world. I will post Gem World International price list for Zambian emeralds. The grade of this stone is on the border of Upper Fine and Lower Extra Fine grades - $5,000 per ct (5-6 times more in online stores like James Allen, Gems NY and a few others).  For fast sale my regular price of such stones on gem shows and to private clients is $2,000 - 2,200 per ct (still around $5,000/ct if it is top Intergem show). On Gemrock and eBay I usually list such stones for $1,800 per ct. But I will list this stone for extremely low starting price of $800 per ct.
