I am happy with the stone for the price, but there are inclusions so the picture does not match the stone or has been photoshopped

Clarity. Without describing “tiny bit of...” - excep[tionally clean and transparent stone.
Picture. It is picture of our photographer and this time it is not surrealistic. Well, it is still “too much crystal” (the stone is not up in your face external type; it is rich, deep and glowing), stripes on the left look weird and many other things but it is much more realistic than most of his pictures. The bottom line: picture shows a beautiful stone and the real stone is extyremely beautiful.
Stone. Top of the line gorgeous clean bright and glowing stone!
Just ok colour heat only sapphires started at $1,000/ct. Unheated somewhere over $3,000/ct.
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 (ES Gems) 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.
Great seller; swift delivery; beautiful, high quality stone that matched certification. Thank you for the deal! Highly recommended...
