Its clarity is superb, as well. It's brilliantly fiery, with just enough visible "jardin" that no one will ask you Is it real? They will have no doubt that this enormous stone is natural, and they'll be awed by it.
It has no veils, mist, or fog to dim its sparkling clarity, and its "jardin" doesn't impact its incredible brilliance. Its cut is good, too, though slightly shallow -- but since this gem is much too large for anything but a pendant or a brooch, it's not necessarily a bad thing that it will lie somewhat flat.And as you can see, its window in no way prevents it from showing plenty of sparkling blue-green fire!

Notes: This Zambian Emerald is rated SI-II because its typical emerald "jardin", though visible to the unaided eye, in no way diminishes its sparkling brilliance.

For Type II and Type III gems like Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, (which are normally very included) you may also see the following clarity designations.Very Clean Type II gem. Almost Clean, Very Bright Sparkling Type II gem. Very slightly hazy or included Still Very Bright, Fine Quality Type II gem.
Policies: Earthlight Gems is dedicated to bringing fine, natural gems to you. We don't sell fake, synthetic, or lab-created gems. Many natural gems are heated or treated, but we pledge to disclose any known treatment issues in the description.
To ensure the quality and fair pricing of our gems, all gems are inspected by a GIA-certified gemologist before being offered for sale. We also show actual images of the gems we list -- we don't recycle gem images for similar auctions.
Gems are difficult to photograph, and some gems (particularly Emeralds and Spessartites) refuse to show their true colors in photos. We therefore pledge to you, our customer, that if we do color-correct a photograph, it is in an effort to show the gem accurately, never to deceive you about the stone's color or quality.
And if we still can't get the photograph to show the gem's true color, please believe us when we say it's much more beautiful than the photo shows! You may notice that none of our gems is described as having "IF" or Flawless clarity.
Please rest assured that all of our VVS gems are indeed flawless to the eye and many of them are also flawless under 10X.
