Notes - Extremely Rare Gem from Russia. Second Rarest Green Color, only due to the Ekaterina we have in our collection being the absolute finest and more saturated thus is second finest gem in existence unless the families or estates of the old, “Robber Baron’s,” release material for sale which has not happened since the material was bought pre-auction by the elite of NY when the Czar of Russia and his family were murdered. The royal
collection (or what could be found,) was auctioned at Tiffany & Co. in 1919. mysteriously items listed in the auction catalogue disappeared the night before auction many believed to have been purchased by J.P. Morgan at a price that could not be refused. This gem was from the same old Royal mines now closed In Russia. These mines produced the original Imperial Topaz before it became a brand name for any gold to pink Topaz in Brazil. This material is at just under flawless clarity with NO HEAT. And you may never have the opportunity to buy it again. See it’s large sister gem the Ekaterina Topaz, a Flawless 80 carat vivid mint green to golden green gem cut by Mathias as well.
