I thought there was nothing more appropriate than to apply for Guinness World Records status for an uncut emerald. With this, we “We want to inspire people around the world and showcase the exquisite beauty and rarity of natural gemstones, especially natural gemstones from Africa. We want to pass on the knowledge and love of natural gemstones to future generations.”
The Kagem Emerald Mine is famous for producing giant, colorful gemstones. The previous world record belonged to a 5,655-carat emerald named Inkalamu, meaning lion in the local language, found in 2018.
In early November 2022, at Sotheby’s Magnificent Jewels auction, a 300-year-old emerald was valued at up to $70,000. The emerald was found on the Nuestra Señora de Atocha shipwreck.
The ship Nuestra Señora de Atocha was built in Cuba in the 17th century to transport goods. In 1622, the Antocha sailed from Spain to the West Indies, stopping at the ports of Cartagena, Colombia, and Portobelo, Panama, to load the wealth of noble passengers.
Both the Atocha and the Santa Margarita sank on the coast of Florida while returning to Spain during a severe storm. The ship is home to many treasures, including a 6.25 carat emerald.
