Massive emerald found in Brazil

The massive emerald, which weighs 794 pounds and stands around 4.3 feet high was unearthed a month ago, 200 metres deep inside the Carnaiba Mine in Brazil.
The emerald rock is being kept under heavy security in a secret location as the owner revealed he is living in fear of kidnapping, extortion and armed robbery. Experts predict the impressive boulder may contain 180,000 carats of emerald crystals. There are only two giant stones with this density of crystals in the world, with the other being the Bahia emerald.
