Emerald Museum in Bogotá

April 29, 2014

logo_museo_esmeralda_bogota_280px If you are looking for a complete and richly endowed emerald exhibition, make sure you visit the Emerald Museum in Bogotá. Video projections, recreated mine tunnels and magnificent gem specimens will give you a detailed and comprehensive overview of the world of emeralds. Special emphasis is placed on the four main mines of Colombia; Gachala, Chivor, Coscuez and of course the legendary Muzo mine. 
This exhibition also contributes to the preservation of Colombia as the heart of “everything emeralds”.

RRMuzo International has taken on Ron Ringsrud as Director of Operations and Sales. He is responsible for selling the output of the world’s most prestigious and historic emerald mine. As part of its expansion operation, Ringsrud was brought aboard to apply his 30-years experience to the areas of operations and sales. 
Ringsrud has already travelled to the Colombian cutting headquarters called CTT (Colombiano Texas Transformadora), in the Free Trade Zone in Bogotá, as well as the emerald mine itself. “I am impressed by the strong focus on technology and personnel at Muzo; they really are bringing the mine forward into the new century.” 
In December, Ringsrud returned from a visit to the Geneva, Switzerland operations center where part of the emerald inventory is displayed. Muzo International expects to participate, as before, in several major gem trade events and exhibitions: BaselWorld Fair, JCK Luxury Las Vegas Fair and September Hong Kong AWE Fair. 
Ron Ringsrud, a 30 year veteran of the international emerald trade, is the author of the book Emeralds, A Passionate Guide, a comprehensive work on emeralds.

Cat’s eyes

November 4, 2013

cats eyes- (2)The large chunk of broken trapiche did not find any takers at first. But Mr Misael Angel Rodriguez did not decline the offer. The rough was covered by carbonaceous and you could not tell which surprise it could reveal. The lucky man was offered a 300 carats Muzo emerald with two major sections. As the experienced cutter started cutting, he and his wife noticed two tube-like portions of similar size, which might be characteristic of the cat’s eyes material. As the surprise is nearing its final shape, it appears to be a 76 carats cat’s eyes shape. “Cat”-ters, keep your eyes open!
