Comment: Newly permitted into our stock: Oiled emeralds. (Please read here if you want to know why.)

Sandawana emeralds are perhaps the most famous emeralds amongst connoisseurs, even if the public thinks 'Columbia' when fine green gems are the topic. Therefor a matching Sandawana Emeralds are a tall order. Here are two pear shapes, 6x4mm big enough for dangling earrings, or as super posh sidestones. Both border between lightly included and some just visible inclusions. The best shot to judge clarity and color is the distanced handshot (more images). Our close-ups show you much more than you need to see, more even than the lens does. Rich in Chromium, always intense green, no yellow, only the faintest tint of blue, no grey. Double ID-ed by IGI as 'Zimbabwe emeralds' with 'good' and 'fine' color quality, both being qualifiers that IGI uses very sparingly, especially 'fine color quality'. The images show no difference, IRL only the very experienced could distinguish these two. Matched to become a bespoke world-class pair of earrings with the rarest emeralds of all times. Read on if you like to know why Sandawana emeralds are such a special breed. Perhaps the only gem-quality pair available in this size.
