A Superb, 1.2 cm-tall Emerald sitting perfectly on dark matrix with minor calcite. This incredible Emerald is GEM-clear, lustrous, and has the absolute best deep emerald color that you could ask for. It is a depth and color saturation you rarely see on an emerald. Although small , perhaps to some, it has a huge impact visually and is overall a full thumbnail, balanced and with a "center" to it that draws the eye. The compex termination is also quite stunning. A killer, even better in real life - it just GLOWS, for lack of a better word to describe it. It is one of the finest thumbnail emeralds I have seen. Not the biggest, but just a stunning "jewel"
