No matter what anyone says or does, my task is to be emerald, my color undiminished. – Marcus Aurelius

What is it about the amazing gemstone emerald that makes us wonder how such a color is possible? Well, it must be something powerful because one emerald certainly has many locked in its hypnotic grip.

According to JCK:

The Rockefeller Emerald, an 18.04 ct. “exceptional” Colombian gem, will highlight Christie’s June 20 Magnificent Jewels sale in New York City.

The step-cut stone, mounted with diamonds in a piece by designer Raymond C. Yard, is considered one of the finest emeralds ever to be auctioned. It carries a $4,000,000 to $6,000,000 estimate.

American Gemological Laboratories describes the stone as “exceptional” with “an unusual combination of size, provenance, absence of treatment, and quality factors.”
