Now cutting an emerald cut from an included piece of rough, that can not be completely clean up, is pushing your luck because any distracting flaws show up real well. This 2.61 carat, great yellow emerald cut, was extracted from a couple of water worn pebbles I purchased years ago from East Africa. The rough was heavily frosted and only graded as semi-facet grade. Fortunately the pebbles were big enough to give me space to get a nice suite of gems. This bright, clean emerald cut has no indications of green or brown in its color even when pushed. I say clean, when I should stress under the table since there might be a little scatter around the girdle. When all this is said and down, I am very proud of this gemstone and it, along with its suite, are important to the color balance of the collection.
