384 Gram Emerald

Several months ago, Robert Lowe posted about a huge 384 gram emerald.
I have a picture of the ‘Mother’ stone and all the stones cut from it
(the largest is 84 cts.) , as well as a little history and who cut it.
Please feel free to take a look at http://www.rocksmyth.com .

Last week, Robert Lowe and his partner Geraldo came through Dallas on
their way back to Brazil after theTuson show. He and his partner,
Geraldo, are two of the nicest gentlemen I’ve had the pleasure of
doing business with. After I fed them Texas style filet mignon smoked
over Mesquite and served on rice pilaf, we got down to business and he
displayed a selection of gems like I’ve never seen. I bought all I
could afford and then some. I’m already anticipating his next trip.
I’ll put some prices and sizes on these over the weekend, but most
will end up in jewelry pieces.


Hi Folks,

I just thought I would chime-in on Randy’s email. I have been buying
gemstones from Robert for several years and have always been very
pleased with the quality and value of his stones.

That being said, I have also seen these finished stones, and was
trying my best to justify the purchase of one (or more) of them. The
images Randy has posted on his Web site are very accurate
representations of these stones. The color and clarity are faithfully

As a side note, Randy, you might want to see if you can get the mm
measurements from Robert an post them on the site. It will give
people a better feel for the scale of the stones. REALLY large! If
nothing else, a chance to buy a large, surprisingly clear, cut emerald
for your collection. Even if you never set it, I think this is a great

For what its worth,
