Thumbnail, 5.3 x 3.0 x 3.0 cm
Muzo Mine, Muzo, Vasquez-Yacopi Mining District, Boyaca Department, Colombia
STUNNING, DEEP GREEN, EXCEPTIONALLY GEMMY AND BRIGHT emerald crystal measuring 2.5 cm, firmly nestled in crystallized (and notably contrasting) calcite matrix. What is nice about the piece is that the crystal is implanted so thoroughly that there is no question of its authenticity. The color and internal gemminess are extremely high. 5.3 x 3 x 3 cm
