Swat Valley possesses one of the largest deposit of emeralds in Asia. The gem-quality emeralds are small but are highly prized for their intense, vivid green color. Emerald is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl, a mineral species that also includes aquamarine as well as beryls in other colors.
For over 5000 years, emeralds have been one of the most desirable and valuable colored stones Ancient civilizations in Africa, Asia and South American dependently discovered emeralds and made them a gemstone of highest esteem. In the United States and many other countries, emerald serves as the birthstone for people who were born in the month of May.
Today emerald, together with ruby and sapphire, form the “big three” of colored stones. The “big three” generate more economic activity than all other colored stones combined. In 2015 the value of emeralds imported into the United States exceeded the value of all colored stones outside of the “big three” combined.

A remarkable moonstone, notable for its elegance of cut, clarity, and size. It was actually a cleaner stone than the pictures suggested! I really appreciate having the chance to bid for occasional gems like these in the "no reserve" auctions. Thank you!
