While the euhedral emeralds on this showy specimen are not up to Colombian standards, they are lustrous, translucent, and brightly colored in a richly saturated shade of grass green. The contrast with the dark diopside & quartz matrix is very good, and there are emeralds on both sides of the specimen. The emeralds have well defined faces and edges, and several are terminated into the matrix. This piece is highly representative of the quality of material coming from this newly discovered (2015) locality.
