Aquamarine Oval cut gemstone that is 1.9CTS in total weight. It has a wonderful light blue/very light greenish blue coloring. This is a lovely stone for any jeweler, collector, or hobbyist. This stone like most of these stones we sell were mined, hand cut, and polished in Eastern Afghanistan all by the same family. Small needle-like inclusions and growth tubes present. These inclusions are typical of natural origin. A few conchoidal fractures are also present. The trade has concluded that all Aquamarine has to be assumed to have been heat treated, however no such treatment is detectable in this stone. Given its light color and purported lack of treatments by the gem dealer we purchased it from we believe it to be untreated.
Here at Double Moon Gems we hand select all our gems from Afghanistan & Pakistan and bring them back to the US to sell at steeply reduced prices. Each of these gems is evaluated and only those that present well are selected to be sold. A further 10% of each parcel is graded as a secondary check to validate our findings but as this adds costs to the stone those stones are only sold individually from time to time. And finally, if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we will completely refund your purchase. Simply get the stones postmarked back to us within 7 days of your receiving them and in the same condition in which you received them and we will completely refund your purchase.
We work with two families in Afghanistan who are 2nd and 3rd generation jewelers, whose extended families work as miners and as cutters in Eastern Afghanistan. It is because of these relationships that we are able to offer such good deals. Each stone that we sell from Afghanistan has likely only been out of the ground for less than a year. And between the deals made with both the Government of Afghanistan and local Taliban leaders, these families work very hard to continue a trade they have been involved in for generations.
All weights and dimensions are approximate as the sensitivity and calibration of the tools used may not be the same as yours. If you have any questions or would like to discuss wholesale purchasing options please drop us a line and we would be happy to discuss. Our listings will be growing as our current inventory includes but is not limited too; Ruby, Emerald, Garnet, Peridot, Topaz, Kunzite, Citrine, Tourmaline, etc.
