    Accompanied by report nos. 0609083 and 0609082 dated 26 September 2006 from the Gübelin Gemmological Laboratory stating that the 6.67 and 5.55 carat emeralds are of Colombia origin with indications of insignificant and minor clarity enhancement

    Accompanied by report no. 15284705 dated 18 October 2006 from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the 6.67 and 5.55 carat emeralds are natural beryls, with minor clarity enhancement present. With additional comments stating that due to their growth conditions in nature and recovery methods, most emeralds contain surface reaching features. For this reason, clarity enhancement is a common trade practice
