Item Description

India is not necessarily the place that most people think of when it comes to Emeralds, but we picked up this stone direct from our source in India who confirmed it's from the Bubani Mine in Rajasthan, India. The stone is a monstrous "Step Emerald" cut gem with a rich, consistent green color throughout. Despite the fairly basic cut, it's the size and color of the stone that really make it shine. Now the stone is opaque, but with very strong backlighting, you can get a bit of color to peek through the edges. A truly impressive gem that would make a great addition to any collection. We don't have a carat scale here that can handle a stone of this size, so I threw it on the gram scale, and it came out at exactly 300 grams, so that means it's 1,500 carats. Not too many people can say they've seen an 1,500 carat faceted Emerald from many localities, and if you're a fan of interesting gemstones, worldwide Emeralds or if you know somebody with a birthday in May who would love to receive this as a gift, don't miss out on this interesting and attractive gem from this lesser-known locality in India.
