Question
I have this clustering of light green dark green and clear crystals that appear to be an emerald. Could you tell me if it is an emerald and it's uncut. Also how much is it worth

Answer
this is really out of my expertise, but I just want to say when you bring it in to a gemologist or very reputable jewelry store. Make sure you get two separate opinions...or more..
and keep the stone with you in your possession...., high quality emeralds can be very expensive...
. Your best bet is to find someone who will actually cuts emeralds and again you need someone
very reputable or you may not get back what you left....

Experience


I am a small manufacturer of jewelry for semi-precious stones. I have been working in this area for 10 years. Our Major stones are Larimar (from the Caribbean) and Dichroic ( a man made crystal ). The majority of our work is in silver and 14k gold. We do not deal in fine jewelry such as diamonds..
