MINAS CUNAS

Nestling in the Colombian Andes

 

These are among the highest quality and rarest Colombian emeralds mined in at least a decade.

Production at the Cunas mine had been a little slow in the months preceding December 2019. The discovery of 300 cts of fine quality material, in a rich pocket known as Mundo Nuevo, changed all that. From this high-quality rough, two exceptional raw emeralds were extracted, weighing 46 and 64 cts respectively.

Preparation for cutting took several months of study and modelling. The result is this exquisite, perfectly matched pair of emeralds, extraordinarily rare in every respect, and truly befitting the description of “magnificent”.

LEGENDARY COLOUR

THE COLOUR OF DESIRE – AND ENVY

Described as vivid green, these emeralds are reminiscent of the distinctive colour that has become synonymous with this renowned region.

A UNIQUE CLASS OF GEMSTONE

Gembridge Ambassador, Joe Menzie, who had the pleasure of inspecting these extraordinary emeralds during a New York shoot, said, “I had heard about this pair, but when I actually saw them side by side it was incredible. To find one stone this size with purity of colour and exceptional clarity is very difficult. However, two of the same size, cutting style, lustre, saturation and tone, is a ‘once in a lifetime’ occurrence.”

 

After 47 years, and looking at over 500,000 gemstones, I can say, without hesitancy, that this is one of the finest pairs of Colombian emeralds I have ever seen.
