In Ancient Peru, the Incas worshipped Umiña, the goddess of health. To celebrate the goddess, the Incas carved her shape from the biggest and greenest emerald crystal ever seen, and referred to all smaller emeralds as the children of Umiña. If this emerald was around today, it would be worth tens of millions of dollars.
The reason it's not around is that when the Conquistadors came a-conquering, they quickly earned a reputation for ransacking Incan temples and making off with precious gemstones, so the Incan priests wisely hid the Umiña emerald in a secret location. To this day, she's never been found.
We shed a tear for the world's greatest lost emerald with one of our own. The Umiña Teardrop Emerald is a gorgeous green enhanced emerald in a dramatic teardrop cut. Our Umiña Teardrop emerald may not be the same size as the original, but it's still a generous 10-carats of pure emerald. Just like the original, our Umiña emerald can't be won by conquest.
