After many years of sitting in a bank vault, this historical emerald will be sold to the highest bidder at a no reserve auction.  It is known as the "Polly" emerald. For years it was on public display in various places and then most recently was stored in a bank vault. We believe it to be one of the largest emeralds in the world. We think it will make a wonderful investment for the lucky public bidder that buys this investment stone. It was recently appraised by a GIA certified appraiser for $454,000. This was an insurance appraisal. We have no idea what the value of this unique stone is. That is why the consignor has chosen to let the world wide public decide what the final auction price will be. Good luck bidding on this world class emerald. For this auction only, we will be accepting phone bids and absentee bids with a $50,000 deposit. Good luck bidding on the historic "Polly" emerald. utilizes Retail Replacement Value Appraisals from a third party gemologist.
