The Marcial de Gomar Collection
The Marcial de Gomar Emerald Collection consists of loose emeralds (both cut and rough) plus pieces of emerald jewelry. The spectacular emeralds in this collection were collected by Manuel Marcial de Gomar over a long career spent both in the United States and in the jungles of Colombia, where he started out at the Chivor emerald mine then explored the Muzo region including Banco Tequendama (a part of Muzo and where the emeralds of the Atocha are from) and Yacopi first and then afterwards got his exploration permits for the Gachalá/Somondoco region. The Muzo region is widely known for producing the world’s finest emeralds. Mr. Marcial’s knowledge of rare emeralds has placed him in demand as an author, lecturer and consultant, and while his family continues in their involvement with these gems, it is Manuel’s lifelong personal collection that is being sold.
