Panjshir Emeralds

Panjshir emeralds for sale from Afghanistan

Panjsher / Panjshir emeralds are one of the finest qualities of emerald gemstones found in the world hailing from the Panjshir valley in Afghanistan, pensil like octagonal rough crystals are mined from the western mountains of Afghan regiaon. These stones are more popular for their mesmerizing bright color which is lively green with a perfect combination of green with yellow and blue tint giving them a vivid neon shade adding to it is the ultimate glow or luster in the stones and so have become much sought after emeralds. Once the crystals from here were considered a waste or lowest quality emerald rough by miners because of high saturation of inclusions but now because of new cutting techniques very small faceted stones can be made with modern machines, now the melee size cut from it is the most expensive melee emeralds of all. 

Recognized as the most magnificent shade with ultimate crystalline transparency these emeralds in attraction are rivals to best emeralds found in any other emerald mines of the world like Muzo and Chivor mines of Colombia or best Zambian emeralds. The cut, clarity, color and carat weight determines the worth of stone; those with vivid even color in bigger sizes are extremely expensive and rare auction type gems. The rough found here is more saturated with inclusions and due to lack of proper mining techniques done with abrupt explosions now (in older times all extraction was done with hammer and nail) the stone develops cracks alike cobweb. The rough naturally even is filled with fissures (hollow cack space or veins of stone) so they appear more grilled then other origin emeralds so surface opening cracks and minor pits are common in these emeralds also black carbon inclusions and red-white sand is abudently found. Panjshir emerald stone is found from transparent to opaque transperency full of cracks and inclusions so clear and transparent big size Panjshir emerald with good color are very rare and fetch high prices because they are not found abudently as Colombian emeralds. 


The rough is being mined here in now Afghan region from over thousand years and mines in the valley are the oldest source of these fine gem stones on earth. The valley is located more than 100 km north east of Kabul city and there are more than 170 mines which have given emerald produce from infinite years, the famous ones are Khenj mines of Milzeni, Mikeni, Butak, Barun and Darlzhenj region deposits.

The difference in the geography of mining areas differ emeralds in characteristics from one another and only few old experienced  people can distinguish these emeralds on the level of mines.
