Comment: Bright bluish green Columbia emerald with transparent fluid crystal. Silky inclusions splinter luster into shiny glow (as opposed to single sparks). AIG report with famous pedigree, "transparent" (many new gems are only translucent or worse), and oil only. Though under one carat, good pendant size with 8x5mm and full visibility (check handshots). Like other Columbian emeralds in this so-called 'open color', the word 'ghostly green' comes to my mind as a character description. Perhaps not a marketing friendly wording but since famous jewelers use skull & crossbones or vampires as design-basis, here is a suitable gem for the black-arts market. Compare 1.58. Face-up in symmetric shape though the back is cut slightly off center, as so often in rare material the lapidary optimized weight following the natural crystal shape. As always with us, the price includes global shipping, gem lab report, 1000sqm WLT rain-forest protection and every extra you may need to enjoy your precious gem.
