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.

I usually write lengthy descriptions in Clarity - Picture - Stone format. No need for this stone - top of the line - but as a tradition only briefly.

Clarity. In one position face you can see (if you have an eagle’s vision) a bit of tiny to microscopic dust on the crown but this is just for the accuracy. Nearly perfect for Type 3 stones clarity and transparency.

Picture. Some of pictures of top Zambian stones are mine, some of our photographer. I must confess: I realized I would never get even decent picture for SUCH stones and asked my assistant to find some suitable in her archive but she laughed: “For these stones? Did you discuss this matter with your psychiatrist?” Our new photographer is very good, he is a professional but he just started photographing emeralds and it was completely different universe. So far his pictures look like fruit of imagination of the alien from the remote galaxy - very drunk one. My assistant criticize him (along with me of course): “Dynamic duo! Insane clarity obsessed maniac and spaced-out Brilliance Man! Starts Friday in the theaters near you.” This is my picture. Thanks to inner reflection/shine it says that the stone is transparent. Otherwise it would be a common “half in a dark/have overly bright” with even though dark but still a window. No real bright Top Grade color of course, no exceptional sparkling glow. In general, no matter who photographed a stone, please don’t pay a smallest attention to it: stones of such caliber cannot be photographed.

Stone. Actually it doesn’t need any description. Incredible (relatively) dark but extremely bright and glowing Top Grade color, exceptional high-end stone!

I never refer to born in narcotic hallucinations various industry’ price lists. I don’t refer even to International Gem Society one (well, very rarely) despite of the fact it is world famous strictly educational institution. Their values are real but only if the name of your store is Tiffany or Cartier or when you say: “My local jeweler sells such stones for…” - it means you live on Rodeo Drive. I refer to Gem World International price list – Bible of every jeweler, gem dealer and serious buyer and the only source of real values. Their prices are real prices of gem dealer to jeweler (jeweler to customer price is standard 2.5 times higher). For your reference I scanned their prices for Zambian emeralds.

This is top stone but I don’t think that it is Extra Fine Grade; even Lower Extra Fine. It is in the middle of Upper Fine Grade ($3,500 - $5,000 per ct) – approximately $4,200 per ct, but I listed it extremely low for such stone $1,300 per ct. After all we sell on eBay and Gemrock mostly for promotion.
