The emerald cut is a combination of an absolutely transparent body without any hint of dichroism and wonderful crystal. It is quite impressive without even mentioning a color. Now its eye clean stature and stable blue color (it slips a little in the yellow light, but no more than expected.) gives me the same feeling that I used to get at looking at old bank buildings. Solid and responsible, not a piece of eye candy. It has a great blue and very good flash, even thought the emerald cut is not a strong scintillating cut, the ends are active. Still this substantial stone refuses to cross the line and become eye candy. It weighs 3.21 carats and would make a powerful statement in a piece of jewelery as long as you don’t want eye candy. I really didn’t want it to be eye candy, but it would be nice.
