Fura Gems finds giant emerald at Coscuez mine in Colombia

Fura Gems (TSX-V:FUR), has found a 25.97-carat rough emerald at its Coscuez emerald mine in Colombia. The company says the gemstone is a “rare and exceptional” one, given its size, colour saturation and clarity.

It has been named the “ÄRE Emerald”, after a figure in ancient Colombian mythology responsible for the creation of emeralds in the country’s Boyacá region: the Fura and Tena mountains, as well as the Rio Minero River.
