The private holder, who can only be identified by his initials FG, told Caters on Wednesday (14) the giant stone, which is peppered throughout with emerald jewels, is extremely rare because of its ‘considerable size and the quality of its gigantic crystals’. He revealed that while it would need a forklift truck to lift the huge cluster of jewels, the risks of a heist are high in Brazil where criminal gangs use explosives to raid banks and carry powerful firearms. The massive emerald, which weighs a whopping 794 pounds (360kg) and stands around 4.3 feet high (1.3metres), was unearthed a month ago, 200 metres deep inside the Carnaiba Mine, a gem-rich mineral exploration area in Bahia, north east Brazil.
