Few collections are graced by a big-fat-lush GEM QUALITY emerald in matrix. This is THE color to get and is an exact match to the photos. A significant piece because 99.9% of crystals display some clarity, but hardly ever a large section of it. This piece has intrinsic value. The thing is so gemmy in fact, you can clearly see the back face up against dark calcite. No damage to the termination. Ex Dave Wilber
