We highly recommend this new tour choice in Cartagena. We had an easy time connecting with our tour's driver. He drove through the Old City and pointed out many of the key sites to see. We arrived at the Emerald Museum and Factory where we were guided through the 3-story building in the new part of the city of Cartagena. The museum contains replicas of the emerald mines and miners and follows the emerald processing through to final jewelry. Artists, who create the gem quality stone, are trained and do their craft at the same factory location. One of the owners took the time to meet us. A number of emerald sample specimens fill the museum. The quality of Colombia emeralds compared to those found in other parts of the world are displayed and explained. The tour ends in the retail store where you have the opportunity to purchase emerald jewelry. The owners have hired local Cartagena low income students to learn the emerald making craft, contributing to the advancement of the local population. Everyone we met was very kind, helpful and gracious.
We highly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in gemology or who wants to understand the interesting journey gems take from the mine to the jewelry store.
