New York City headquartered auction house Guernsey's has planned two exceptional events in the first half of the year. Both events will be conducted live at the Americas Society at 680 Park Avenue with online bidding at liveauctioneers.com.

The auction will appear on April 12 offering the Marcial de Gomar Collection of spectacular emeralds. Following this auction is one on May 3, offering the Mountain Star Ruby Collection.

The Marcial de Gomar Emerald Collection consists of more than twenty loose emeralds (both cut and rough) plus 13 pieces of emerald jewelry. Featured lots in the Marcial de Gomar Collection include - La Gloria of 887 carats and the largest Muzo rough emerald in North America; the Marcial de Gomar Star, the largest of only 11 star emeralds known to exist and perhaps the first of its kind as a double-sided star emerald; the Tears of Fura, an impressive matched pair of large teardrop-shaped Muzo emeralds. Following the friendship formed between Mr. Marcial befriended Mel Fisher, the famed treasure hunter known for his work with the sunken Spanish galleon Nuestra Señora de Atocha, several Muzo emeralds and rare gold coins from the Atocha passed into the Marcial de Gomar Collection and will be included in this event.

The emeralds were collected by Manuel Marcial de Gomar over a long career spent in the United States and in the jungles of Colombia, where he worked in the legendary Muzo mines.

The Mountain Star Ruby Collection consists of four extraordinary star rubies – each with an exquisite star* and collectively weighing in at 342 carats – experts have described this Collection as potentially the finest in the world. (*The Smokey Mountain Two Star Ruby, as its name suggests, has distinctive stars on both front and back.)
