This is one of the darker green Ethiopian Emeralds I have worked with. It does have some brown Jardin in it, hence the price. The mine had oil treated the rough, but we did not treat it, and it spent a bunch of time in Alcohol, which washed away what little oil remained. We did have this Emerald GIA Certified.

Here is a traditional cut Ethiopian Emerald that has a good green color and sparkles in the light. It does have some brown Jardin but there are beautiful plays of light and color that make it seem almost alive!
