Gloriously Green

Representing the lushest of greens and the richest hues of nature, emeralds have been captivating passionate adventurers and serene thinkers alike since antiquity. Known as the stone of Kings, Mughal rulers prized emeralds as the colour of paradise and purity – an embodiment of the divine spirit. Among these treasured gems, the finest of them all would come from Colombia.

Colombian emeralds owe their distinctly green hue to chromium. However, chromium often has a negative impact on clarity, giving emeralds their typical crystallographic stress fractures. To find a clear Colombian emerald crystal in nature is an extremely rare occurrence – a treasure that is sure to entice discerning connoisseurs. Lot 1774 exhibits the wondrous combination of outstanding clarity and vivid colour, a strikingly rare gift from Mother Nature.
