This is a stone from the old days that I decided to store with the collection. Then thinking about it, if I want as broad a sample of color/intensity/tone as I can get, I should include it as a permanent member. So this common dark dark green, that looks black, most of the time was welcomed. I do see a little green flash under good lighting so the facet job is not just for surface flash. The emerald cut weighs 2.24 carats.
