World’s largest cut emerald goes up for sale


Teodora Emerald

One of the wonders of the jewelry world, this Brazilian gemstone hauls in at 25 pounds, and more than 57,000 carats – that makes it the fifth largest emerald ever found and the largest to be cut with facets. The massive emerald was left intact because it is opaque; the translucent kind is desired for jewelry.

Nicknamed “Teodora” (meaning “gift of God”) it will be auctioned in British Columbia later this month.

Think you would be interested? Bidding starts at $1 million.
