Paraiba 2016 10

Green Paraiba from Mozambique

This month we feature a stunning paraiba from Mozambique. When people hear paraiba they generally think of that classic Caribbean blue. However, just outside the more well-known blue spectrum lies a varying palette of greens—still holding that fluorescent glow for which we have come to know paraiba, but with varying levels of green, yellow, and hints of blue.

Green paraibas were uncovered in the original Brazilian find, through to the Nigerian discovery and right down to the most recent find in Mozambique. This 5.37-carat Mozambique paraiba has a strong grassy green hue with traces of yellow and blue, a beautiful mix that shifts color in different lights. Precision cut and nearly flawless, this is a top-notch collectable gem.
