    This 8.95 carat emerald, referred to as the La Paz Emerald, is a gemstone of superb quality and exceptional rarity. Extracted from the depths of the legendary emerald mines of the Colombian Andes, this emerald is prized for its radiant green color and transparency that is rare to find in nature.
