With the discovery of a New Emerald find in Ethiopia only months old I thought there might be some interest on G.O. to see how this material facets out. Did not want a standard bulky step cut but, rather a brighter cleaner line and went with an ECED ended cut to show off this materials clarity. The Ethiopian material might just give the Colombian Chivor’s a run for their money. This material has a medium grassy green with a touch of blue and has not been treated in any way.

Hope you enjoy,

I'm really glad to see that. I picked up some rough this year in Tucson and I'm still looking to have it cut. The range of colors was really impressive to me.

Love it!

Any reasonably priced rough available?

Any decent crystals seen? Freestanding or locked in matrix?

Has the find been taken over by a big mining company yet?
