Guernsey’s, the New York City-based auction house, is delighted to announce the auction of the Marcial de Gomar Collection of rare emeralds on April 25th. The event will be conducted live at the Americas Society at 680 Park Avenue with online bidding at liveauctioneers.com.

Featured lots in the Marcial de Gomar Collection include:

  • La Gloria, which, at 887 carats, is one of the largest museum-quality emeralds in the world;
  • Marcial de Gomar Star, the largest of only eleven star emeralds known to exist and perhaps the first of its kind as a double-sided star emerald;
  • Tears of Fura, an impressive matched pair of extremely large teardrop-shaped Muzo emeralds.

Importantly, the Collection also includes the largest assemblage of cut emeralds from the famed Nuestra Señora de Atocha sunken galleon and, among these, the single largest cut emerald recovered from that ship, considered the most important wreck site yet discovered.

Decades ago, Marcial was selected from many experts by Mel Fisher, the famed treasure hunter, to be the independent appraiser of all emeralds recovered from the Atocha. As payment for his expert services, Marcial received a selection of these fine stones from the world-famous wreck. Collectors and enthusiasts of sunken treasure will also be excited to learn that the Collection features, in addition to this unprecedented assemblage of Atocha emeralds, a number of historic gold coins from the 1715 Fleet. All of these items were privately owned and will be presented to the public for the very first time at the auction of the Marcial de Gomar Collection.
