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.
This listing is very close to the one I posted before and called “Incredible Absolutely High-End” with two corrections. Picture of this stone is better. Still altered color, still very grayish, still not even simulation of the inner glow but… better. And unlike perfectly clean “absolute high-end” stone this one has very minor cloudiness or fissure/dot. It is on the side, very minor and visible in only one position face up – absolutely nothing for the stone this weight and excellent transparency; actually nothing for a Type 3 stone of any weight – but according to my partner I am a clarity obsessed maniac (and I am) and I cannot call “Incredible Absolutely High-End” a stone that doesn’t have absolutely perfect clarity. The rest including exceptionally pure and bright Top Grade color and unbelievable deep inner glow is the same.
As usual I posted GemWorld International price list, but in this case it doesn’t apply. They value such stones for $6,500 per ct, but no one sells it for less than $15,000/ct. Actually no one has such stones except Tiffany, Cartier and the like. But their price is not $15,000 per ct. You will be incredibly lucky to get such stone for $45,000/ct.
I have just a few such stones and price them at gem shows for $4,500 per ct (this one because of this minor clarity flaw for $4,000). Since it is a promotion (as all our Fixed Price stones on eBay and here on Gemrock), $2,500 per ct.
