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!

Beyonce’s performance at Barack Obama’s second inauguration in Washington made quite a stirring in the media. Yes, we can still say that she was beautiful, elegant, glamorous and so fashion, but above all, every eye was on Queen B’s sparkling emerald earrings.
The Colombian pear-shaped emeralds were arranged in a flower pattern, apparently of excellent quality, with an average of 8 to 13 carats each. Beyonce, that’s quite a stone!

It is in a kindergarten in the Muzo region that we had the pleasure to meet lovely kids. We brought them some presents. Joy and happiness were spread all over the room! We are anxious to meet them again, to see them grow up and spread again this unforgettable feeling!
According to Pantone, the color of the year 2013 will be “Green Emerald”.
This stunning, deep green is the image of a regenerative and healing spirit. But above all, it is the color of a gorgous, magnificent gemstone. It is known as the color of hope, rejuvenation and renewing. Muzo International is giving a different approach to green, it is Greener.
So, who knows, perhaps Muzo Emerald will be the next Pantone color selection in the next couple of years.
