A SUPER GEMMY, intensely green, 1.8 cm emerald crystal aesthetically set in glassy, colorless calcite rhombs from the less well-known La Pita Mine of Colombia. The crystal broke in half in the pocket, due to tectonic forces, and remains in place by attachment to the surrounding calcite crystals. The uppper 1.0 cm has beautiful emerald-green color saturation and gemminess and certainly has some cutter material. MUCH BETTER IN PERSON! Valued at $1500.
