This stocky emerald cut looks rather like an octagon with the corners cut off so much, because of the steep angles on the ends of the stone. But it seems to produce a great showing of this gems superior flash driven color. And what a green it has, straight from Namibia. I was able to get larger, closed ended crystal from Namibia about ten years ago, but I have not seen anything like it since.
The posted stone appears to be eye clean and has great crystal. Its flash driven color in a medium dark stone rivals the best greens nature has produce in gemstones. The color has excellent saturation and is a pure green. It weighs 4.35 carats.
