Rafael D.M and R.C. ready to start. No, not yet... Usually, when a foreign arrives at the market, he is immediately surrounded by a crowd of comissionistas. Sometimes the pressure, both physical and emotional is such that it feels you are never to see home again....


Another view of downtown Bogota'. The emerald market is nearby.


R.C. viewing a parcel of emeralds. Brokers will come and go all day long to show their stones to the buyers.


Many of the brokers are women. My best stone during that trip, an exceptionally clean Muzo stone, heart shape of 5.65 ct. was purchased from a beautiful, female broker...nothing new about this selling tactic...except that it works well.... for the seller.


Checking emeralds. To know emeralds quality and price takes a lot, lot of experience.


Checking emeralds with a loupe. A careful, close-up examination is very important. There are many synthetics offered to foreign buyers.


A fine parcel of crystal emeralds.


Checking more emeralds...


R.C holding an exceptional crystal from Muzo. This crystal yielded a top, "gota de aceite" match pair, emerald cut of 8.5 cttw. and a natural, hexagon shape of 1.43 ct. (see next)


A master cutter, initializing the cutting process of the emerald crystal on the left. This process is thought through very carefully...


Examining the emerald crystal and try to decide how to get rid of the included section (whitish portion in the emerald crystal). Probably that occurred when the crystal was broken away from the rock host (matrix).

 


The smaller, natural hexagon of 1.43 ct., top color and clarity. Cut from the top of the horizontal, full section of the natural crystal.


Here is the final result: Finest color, top clarity and awesome cutting for this finest match pair, 8.5 cttw. from the Muzo crystal seen previously. In Colombia, top emeralds are called "gota de aceite", that means "oil drop". Were offered for sale in Nov.2004 in Bogota' for several thousands of USD per carat


Beautiful specimen in this parcel. Could not stop smiling...Several thousands per carat as well.


Stunning heart shape of approx. 8 ct from Chivor.
