    Signed Boghossian
    Accompanied by report no. 68680 dated 5 June 2013 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the emerald is of Colombia origin, with no indications of clarity modification; also accompanied by an appendix stating that the natural emerald possesses extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The emerald exhibits a saturated green colour and an attractive purity. Microscopic examination revealed inclusions, which represent the hallmarks of Colombian emeralds from the famous mining areas as Muzo, Coscuez, and Chivor, all located in the green foothills of the Cordillera Oriental in the Colombian Andes. Its saturated green colour is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the stone, typical and characteristic for the finest emeralds of Colombia. Natural emeralds from Colombia of this size and quality are rare and exceptional
