1  Stone Talk / Moderator, Hummingbirdstones ( Robin ) / Mineral Specimens / Help needed regarding first emerald purchase on: April 13, 2022, 12:10:29 pm
Note to moderators: Sorry if this was not the correct place to place this thread, I did not know where to post it. Feel free to move it to the correct location :)

Hello, I am a total newbie to emeralds and to the forum. I live in Colombia and bought my very first emerald today in Bogotá. I was walking past a reputable emerald store downtown and decided to buy this tiny emerald. It cost my $50,000 Colombian Pesos ($13,40 USD). According to the certificate and the salesperson, it's 0.10 carats. and from Chivor, Boyacá.

Can somebody please tell me more from the photos, anything about the emerald and characteristics? Since the store was at a posh sector, I am pretty sure it's legit of course; but was wondering if it was a good price to purchase it and it looks of good quality? I saw a beautiful, larger one that cost 25x more, which I'd love to purchase later on; but depending on if this one looks okay regarding price/quality ratio I'll decide to buy it later perhaps.

Would this Colombian emerald sell for a higher price, say in the United States?

Sorry for all the questions, and thank you very much for any help!
