I am self from afghanistan and this rough comes from friend who owns a mine in the Panjshir valley, the color is best panjshir green and the clarity eye clean , it is a perfect hexagonal crystal a beauty of a rough.
If the stone is completely clean with no inclussions visible and of dark green color $3,000/ct is not unreasonable. You would have to send magnified pictures to see inside the crystal.Date: 4/25/2006 6:27:03 AM
If have a contact in afghanistan who wants to sell me a rough emerald of 45ct perfect color perfect perfect clarity, could someone gives advice about the price of this rough should be to make a good buy.

Gorgeous emerald, Nasim. Reminds me of top Zambiam goods.
You wouldn''t happen to know the coloring agent for Panjsher emerald, would you? Chromium versus vanadium, and whether or not any iron influences the color?
Thanks for the photos. Killer stone.
