This is a most unusual emerald specimen, featuring dark green crystals in narrow stairstep growth , one upon and reachng out from the next, extending elegantly out from a well trimmed matrix! I have never seen the like! This is not a major gem emerald perhaps, but is really a special piece because it so draws the eye with the combination of color and sculptural aesthetics. It is as impactful as an emerald miniature could be, aside from a gem crystal of much higher price point. NOTE : there is ONE CLEAN REPAIR to this specimen, in the middle of the cluster. It is hard to notice and I am sure that Ed himself never realized it. 5.1 x 3.6 x 2.6 cm
