A Red Emerald World
Many times I feel very lucky.
In his comprehensive work on Rhetoric, Aristotle defined Luck as "the cause of good things that happen contrary to reasonable expectation: As when, for instance, all your brothers are ugly, but you are handsome yourself; or when you find a treasure that everybody else has overlooked; or when a missile hits the next man and misses you…All such things are reckoned pieces of Good Luck." In my reckless youth, I spent five years in a war zone and remain as-yet undamaged. Afterwards, I was able to scrape together a world-class Red Emerald collection. As a wise man once said, "Two out of three ain't bad," and many times I feel very lucky.
While there is undeniable Luck in finding a treasure overlooked, finding a sizable quantity of overlooked Red Emeralds also required many years of work spent looking, because Red Emeralds are impossibly rare. Pink Diamonds are an important, rare color-variant recognized as less than 1% of all Diamonds mined. Red Emeralds are also an important and rare color variety, but they number far fewer at only 0.005% the number of all Emeralds on Earth.
At most there are dozens of Red Emeralds in the size class of this 3.73 carat,
and this 10 x 10 x 4.5 mm square cut stone also displays the "Finest Water".
It is impossible for me to know which person in which country will love these basic facts about the Red Emerald as much as I do. Every culture on our planet has a shared history with what an Emerald is -- and all languages have a word to describe a Red one. Knowledge of a Red Emerald belongs to everyone collectively, but their scarcity limits the opportunity for study and investigation. This is no imagined threat, but a scientific reality.
My mission has been to investigate and assess all available information in an attempt to preserve knowledge of the Red Emerald for those in the world today, and for all generations into the future. We have documented some of the very first of the very best jewelry pieces ever assembled for this stone.
We are the first generation to witness this precious addition to one of humanity's favorite gems, now available in one of our favorite colors. Those who have been waiting to see something new are now served sights never before seen. Digital sharing of photos allows every society to access this discovery together; a universal experience inclusive to all.
We post articles weekly and photos daily, and I never dreamed these humble efforts would be so generously rewarded. Today is the three month anniversary of this website, and more pictures of this gemstone have been shared through TheRedEmerald.com than the total number ever published of this mineral variety before! These pages have already reached 38 countries!
Pushpins track the worldwide visitors to the Red Emerald website.
This all makes me feel very lucky. Here is a list of our visitors so far:
