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.
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. Visible even though minor fissures. Technically it is exactly Type 3 VS: “Noticeable inclusions apparent to the unaided eye. Can be medium in size on larger stones.” Of course they will be less apparent in setting but if stone was a “standard” 1 ct and not close to 2 ct I would grade its clarity Type 3 VS-VS if not SI. (I can hear a unison of my partner and my assistant: “What’s an idiot!”)
Picture. Dark spots/lines, discoloration, nothing else. Nothing new either. For the reference purposes only (this cliche means “Don’t pay a smallest attention to it”).
Stone. I am clarity obsessed maniac according to my partner and now also to my assistant and it is not my type of stones. However, not subjectively and objectively (especially if you are an “industry person” with its motto: “Color first, weight second”) the stone is nice. Bright, brilliant and it has a beautiful color.
