Tiffany & Co. have recently revealed the acquisition of an incredible emerald weighing over 10 carats. Sourced directly from the world-renowned Muzo mine in Colombia, this gem has been named the Tiffany Muzo Emerald in honour of its origin, situated 96 kilometres northwest of Bogotá.
“As the world’s authority on rare gems, we are thrilled to announce our recent acquisition of the Tiffany Muzo Emerald,” says Victoria Wirth Reynolds, chief gemologist at Tiffany & Co. “This remarkable stone, weighing over 10 carats, is a continuation of Tiffany’s longstanding heritage of acquiring the most coveted gemstones that Mother Nature has to offer.”
This emerald boasts a rectangular square cut and was extracted from the historic Puerto Arturo shaft in December 2019. Its rarity stems from its exceptional clarity, which provides an unparalleled degree of transparency, accentuating its spectacular colour. Free from any visible fissures, this emerald is virtually inclusion-free, with only a few microscopic inclusions that are characteristic of those found in Muzo mine emeralds.
Moreover, this historic gem showcases the perfectly saturated green hue for which Muzo emeralds are highly sought. The combination of its significant size, prestigious provenance, vivid colour, and exceptional crystal quality truly makes it a natural marvel. The grand debut of the Tiffany Muzo Emerald is set to coincide with the launch of the highly anticipated Blue Book 2023: Out of the Blue collection this fall. Tiffany & Co.’s acquisition of the Tiffany Muzo Emerald reaffirms their dedication to acquiring and preserving nature’s most extraordinary treasures, continuing their legacy as custodians of exceptional gemstones.
