People often ask: why are emeralds so small? In fact, the formation of emeralds can be said to be a miracle of nature, and it is difficult to have large carats. Natural rough emeralds are small, multi-split and multiple that are important reasons. This property makes emeralds very easy to break during the cutting process, so the carat of emeralds is generally not large. So how much is left after an rough emerald is cut?
This property makes it difficult to cut. It will shatter if there is a slight mistake. It is very rare that the finished product after cutting can retain a quarter of its gross weight. In other words, an 8-carat rough emerald can reach a weight of 2 carats after cutting is very rare(only when the quality of the emerald is not low). It can be seen that after cutting an rough emerald, the weight is very small. Such a loss rate is very rare to obtain a large carat emerald. At least that kind of emerald is hard to find.
The weight of the emerald bare stone product has a lot to do with the rough emerald. After understanding the loss of its cutting, it is not difficult to understand why the emerald small carats are more common, and the price gap increases with each additional carat.
