Important information about gemstone valuation. This large emerald green beryl gemstone is professionally appraised for such a high value for several reasons including the fact that it is natural and not artificially enhanced or colored. Additionally, investment grade gemstones like this one being auctioned gain additional appraisal value because of its more rare faceted pear shape cut and scarce emerald green color. The size (measured in carats) of a gemstone is not so important a characteristic as several other characteristics in spite of the misconception that some people might have that size is everything…. it’s just not true that the size entirely defines the value. Most beryl gems in the green color range are the much more common bluish-green or yellowish-green hues. But this gemstone is almost fully shades of rich emerald green. More importantly, the most sought after cut today is the more labor intensive faceted pear cut which is quite distinguished and seldom seen in gems this large, giving this particular quality gem stone much higher value than the common and very average round and oval cuts you may see out there. We can not stress enough to keep in mind that size is not as important as natural color, cut, and overall aesthetic appeal of investment gemstones in the large size range. Today, valuable gemstones like this are being added to diversified asset portfolios increasing the worth of the portfolio since it is a tangible, physical asset which has an appraisal value and can be insured. Stocks and bonds, currencies, savings certificates, government securities, mutual funds, ETF’s, and other traded paper and digital assets are subject to the volatility of the markets (as every smart investor knows) or are risky because they are merely electronic bits and bytes stored on large computers susceptible to digital theft, government confiscation, and computer failure. Even precious metals investing is very risky and also subject to market manipulation and the very volatile precious metals market as well as the whims of LMBA price “fixing” of the gold and silver spot price. Even at todays low value, many analysts have determined that precious metals are still over-valued and can sink in value even further and stay low for many years to come. Quality gems do not have those risks inherent with all the assets noted above; there is no market price manipulation, no price “fixing” by entities which are not without their own vested interest in fixing the price to benefit the positions of parties they are associated with, no computer failure, no government confiscation, and no paper markets crash that will adversely affect the value of your precious investment gemstones. This investment quality gemstone is bound to appreciate over the upcoming years even though other types of investments may not as there is a finite and limited number of such high quality gemstones such as this that can be produced. The amount of labor and cost that goes into exploratory research to find the scarce and hard to reach hydrothermal veins which contain small amounts of gem quality beryl, the costs to transport the material to qualified lapidaries, and the man-hours of labor that is required to refine and facet such a gemstone is mind boggling. Consequently, valuations for gemstones of this quality are appropriately significant. Gemological Laboratory of America, Inc G. Certification #: 102612-LC-QL 11-GAC.
