Carved Colombian Cameo Emerald, 196 CT
It’s been said that the ancient Greeks, much like the ancient Egyptians, were captivated by emeralds and attributed magical qualities to them that enhanced their allure. This spectacular Colombian emerald pays tribute to the ancient Greeks with a cameo of Ajax the Great, a hero of Greek mythology, who was named after an eagle and was trained by a centaur, both of which are symbols on his helmet. The image is expertly crafted and beautifully visualized across the Colombian emerald’s 196-carat weight, making it a wonderful addition to any jewelry or historical collection.
Few gemstones on the market today offer the beauty, value, history and intrigue like that of Colombian emeralds. Originating mainly in the renowned Muzo, Chivor and Coscuez mines, Colombian emeralds are the only emeralds to form in sedimentary rock, where the geological process gives them their coveted green color, intense color saturation and gorgeous internal qualities. From natives of the New World to modern-day royalty, Colombian emeralds are one of the most sought-after and precious gemstones in the world. To learn more about Colombian emeralds, click here.
