    These emeralds are spectacular. :clap:

    I mean, they are a true vivid green, not a pale or cloudy stone you mostly see at this price point.

    Mined in Zambia, they are “clarity enhanced.” Almost all emeralds are clarity enhanced; it is not a stone that is clear when mined. Oils, waxes, and resins are common treatments. Sometimes they are also dyed (or the wax/oil is not clear when they use it, so it’s considered dyed).

    It doesn’t say what, exactly, the treatment is on the website.

    Turquoise is Sleeping Beauty, only $139

    Only treatment is stabilization, which is common for turquoise.

    Tanzanite, which is $166.54

    In the presentation, it’s a bit lighter, a bit more purple, in the presentation. Still, excellent color:

     

     

    It doesn’t say this stone is treated, so it’s all natural!

    (Ignore the host saying that tanzanite was Cleopatra’s favorite stone. Tanzanite was discovered in 1967! However, Cleo was famous for her emeralds.)

    This one was too football ring-ish and masculine for me – but the stones are pretty! :teehee:
