LKA EMERALD

  • 31446844.mp32:30




When the “LKA Emerald” was unearthed in 1984 in the Hiddenite area of North Carolina, it was considered the largest intact emerald found in North America. At 1,686.3 carats, it currently ranks as the 2nd largest. The name “LKA” comes from the company that owned the mine at the time. The “Stephenson Emerald,” found in the same region in 1969, weighs 1,438 cts. It, too, was considered the largest North American emerald until the discovery of the LKA emerald. This stone was named after John A. D. Stephenson, a 19th century researcher of Hiddenite area gems. Both of these gems were displayed in the American Museum of Natural History in the 1990s,

The LKA and Finger (Stephenson) emeralds appears on the market
In June of 1990, LKA International had the 1984 discovered LKA Emerald and the 1969 Michael Finger (Stephenson) Emerald evaluated for quality and value by J. Gelster, who was a member of the American Gem Market System, Moraga, CA (1981-1991 as registered in California). At the time of its discovery, the 1,686.3 carat LKA Emerald was the largest North American Emerald. The Finger emerald had been obtained by LKA with their 1982 purchase of the former Charles Rist assets – land, buildings and museum collection. 
Circa 1992, Kye Abraham, owner and CEO of LKA International, appears to have sold both emeralds to Rick G. Cogburn of Charleston, SC. After their purchase, the two emeralds were evaluated/appraised by Mary Croghan Ramsey of Croghan’s Jewel Box, Charleston, SC in November 1992. From 1992 until 2008 no information has surfaced regarding these two emeralds; there is also no evidence they had ever been displayed publicly since 1982.
In June 2008, the two emeralds were examined by C. “Cap” R. Beesley, president of the American Gemological Laboratories, New York City. This authorative laboratory confirmed that these two crystals were indeed, the un-modified original crystals that had been in storage since the 1980s
With this higher level of confidence, in 2009 the two emerald crystals were sold, via a complicated arrangement, to the “Emerald Owners Holding Company,” who moved the emeralds to another secure bank vault, where they still are in 2017. The holding company hired British Investment Group TCI, Contracts Division,  email bigbwi64@gmail.com) as their exclusive marketing and launched the website www.emeraldsrare.com and in 2017 another website, the www.emeraldcollectionsforsale.com. etc___These websites in promotion for the sale of the two emeralds. etc. Other: Photos may be  used on this website  by  Mark Jacobson  with permission of emeraldsrare.com
