In Australia there are very few places where one can find an emerald. Among Australian collectors and those in the know, the most sort after rarest of Australian emeralds would be the famous Torrington emeralds in New South Wales. This is a tiny little deposit and has long since been dug out which makes these emeralds all the more rare and precious. Torrington emeralds exhibit a unique banded appearance which is really very lovely to see and gives it a very unique appearance. There are alternating bands of green and clear running along the length of the emerald crystal. The emeralds from Torrington were never very large and this one is an excellent size and example of this material. The gem has been finely cut and polished to bring out the best in the stone. This rare Torrington emerald will make a superb addition to your collection.
