Our latest addition to our collection are emeralds. They are perfect for the heart chakra. The finest emeralds come from Columbia and Boliva and this rare green stone continues to climb in value. A fine half carat emerald (about 1/16" across) can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Even lesser quality emeralds are expensive and hard to find. The emerald market is highly controlled, and emeralds are often dyed or oiled to make them look better. When I came across several strands of good quality natural emeralds at the last gem show I attended, I asked the price, knowing that they were most likely going to be unaffordable. After some discussion, bargaining and just a touch of begging, I bought 2 strands and began adding them as an accent to our heart chakra jewels. The emeralds are spectacular with our top quality malachite and African jade necklaces, pendants and earrings. I invite you to take a look and see for yourselves.
