This emerald cut weighs 2.80 carats and is heavily included. It is a modest stone that remains in the collection because of color. #962
When I got this rough I knew that it was heavenly included, but it had wonderfully blue views down the c axis. I cut a long ratio emerald cut out of it, because that was the only practical gemstone I could get out of the rough. As this gem demonstrates, an emerald cut is not the way to go with included material, especially when it is under the table. Also great views down the c axis doesn’t always translate into a beautiful stone. Still this 2.80 carat stone is in the collect because it does have a nice blue even if the hope for copper content did not materialize.
