For sale is an outstanding emerald on quartz from Carnaiba mining district, Brazil. This old time specimen was mined in the mid 1970s. An impressive and excellent example from the world’s largest known emerald deposit, of a large, typically non-gem emerald. The 77 x 32mm main emerald crystal is sharp with deep green color and moderate luster is set nicely on a quartz biotite matrix. The termination is good as the pics show, and the razor sharp sides are in pristine condition. Rarely today are such impressive emerald specimens available, from this classic location. Ex Jack Schlittler collection. Top piece! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
