Comment: Newly in stock: Oiled emeralds. A category invented for our almost not oiled emeralds. (Please read here if you want to know why.)

This article here suggests that Sandawana emeralds are, well, simply the best colored emeralds of all time, better than the best Columbias; and can you imagine a more intense green that this 2.02 carat filling 10x7mm in pear-shape? Its inclusions are visible under the lens and on our images (pretty to see, they are), but hardly to the eye. We see only shining green with blue sparks and silver glitter inside. While you still find a wide selection on this page, Sandawana emeralds are as good as extinct in all sizes, but they have always been rare over one carat, two carats are truly special. Not a precision-cut, but well-shaped and -dimensioned without any flaws. Ideal for a pendant though we have made a very pretty ring with a similar gem (no two are the same but a pear shape over two carats). Study 'more images', the gem's tip is very clean, in low light the blue sparks get stronger but the main body remains saturated green with little blue and no other hue. Not a luster gem, but color over color. 

This article from Guebelin reports the biggest cut Sandawana emerald as 1.56ct. This 2+ carat is THE largest Sandawana emerald ever reported cut, in good quality and oil-only. A gem with full bragging rights.
