If I was an emerald, I would want to look like this green with a touch of blue tourmaline. (like many synthetic emeralds). The tone level of medium dark along with being eye clean and with fine crystal blows many emeralds completely out of the running, to be crowned the most beautiful green gemstone out there (in my opinion). It does have semi closed ends, but once set I doubt that many people would ever notice. This beautiful gemstone weighs 3.00 carats and is a personal gem that does like light.
