If you are into gems you are in for a treat today!
If you’re looking at that hunk of green and thinking, “Gee, that looks like the size of a watermelon,” you’d be right…an emerald the size of a watermelon. Yep, you heard that right. It’s an emerald the size of a watermelon. Have you ever seen a stone that big?
This emerald is one of the rarest stones that we have found. Not because of what it is made of but the size of it, not to mention this one is cut which brings in a whole additional aspect of gems. Now there are larger uncut emeralds in the world but none that are like this giant watermelon.
Coming in at 57,500 carats and weighing 25 pounds, this emerald is the ultimate show piece for any gem collector. But you’ll have to have some hefty funds to be able to purchase it! You may end up selling the rest of your gem collection just to buy it!
There is a chance this gem will be up for auction in the future. We know what the stone is worth, but in an auction you never know what could happen. It may go for far less than it’s worth, or the price may skyrocket as greedy gem collectors try to get their hands on this once-in-a-lifetime chance!
But can you guess how much it costs?!? Watch to find out!
