One of the biggest crystals recovered from 2015-2016 excavations in Ethiopia! Better in person, this looks stunning in a showcase! Surprisingly, this large, doubly terminated, lustrous and translucent, emerald crystal is from Ethiopia. It exhibits an intense, deep green color saturation. The gem mass is 72 grams. We are proud to present some of the most affordable and intensely saturated emerald crystals of quality, found in a long time. These came from a small late 2016 find in Ethiopia, now seemingly exhausted. Not surprisingly, given the easily convertible value of cut and carved emerald rough, many were cut and cabbed to access any available rough inside, and thus few specimens were preserved from the find. Some have schorl tourmaline inclusions, for added interest! We held these back for more than a year to see if more specimens came out, and nothing of this quality has made it to our market since.
