Hello Everybody,

Nice beeing here. I have been studing gemology for quite some time now. The dream is to start my own jewelry collection with hand picked gems from all over the world.

In my search for gemstones I found a good source for emeralds from Panjshir. I also found my source for Persian Turquise with best quality and variaty of stones. I eed to know if you know a good cutter for emeralds in Europe, please let me know.

I am here to find people interested in same subjects as me. I will try to post some pictures of what I found on my sourcing trips.

Wish you all a great summer from Sweden.

Thank you all for your nice words.

I have been offering emeralds from Panjshir in this shape. Now I have to find an experienced polisher for helping me to bring the best out of them. Anybody who knowes a good lapidary around my area? I am from Sweden , Gothenburg.

They have even offered me polished ones but the price for polished one was as expensive as retail prices.

I thought to attach some pictures so you know what I am talking about. No success on posting pictures here, Yet. :) Will try to learn how to post a picture.

Any suggestion?

There were also a lot with these pen emeralds which looks like pens :)

This did not match what I was on my mind for the design but I liked the color and clarity

Well, I'd call that a success, both with uploading pictures and the emeralds!
