Colombian Emerald Discovery Tour
Learn all about Colombia's famous emerald industry during this tour to 2 prestigious jewelers in Cartagena. Experts introduce you to Pre-Columbian jewels and famous emeralds from the Chibcha, Calima, and Tayrona cultures, and explain what make the gemstones so valuable.
Pickup from your hotel brings you to 2 of the most recognized jewelers in Cartagena, where professionals tell you about the industry. Colombian emeralds are considered to be the purest emeralds in the world, mined from deposits in sedimentary rock rather than igneous rock. The country's emerald industry accounts for more than 80 percent of the gemstone's global market. Discover what makes these stones so special as you peruse raw and beautifully cut emeralds in each store.
During your tour, your expert guides also show you gold jewelry and emeralds from the Pre-Columbian period, when emeralds were considered to be one of the world's most valuable jewels. Also get the chance to see beautifully made pendants, necklaces, and other precious accessories from the Chibcha, Calima, and Tayrona cultures.
