A rare emerald valued at $1 million engraved with Quranic verses is attracting attention at the 15th edition of the Abu Dhabi Art Fair.

Juan Gabriel Hernández, director of the Casa Zirio gallery in Colombia, owner of the ‘Stone of Life’ gem, said that it is a “sacred treasure.”

“This is a rare emerald that transcends the boundaries of beauty and spirituality. As you gaze upon its mesmerizing green hues, know that within its core lies a unique manifestation of divine wisdom. Imagine holding in your hands a piece of the wonders of the Earth containing the sacred verses of Surat Al Imran, Ayah 138,” she told Khaleej Times while displaying the exquisite emerald.

Hernandez noted that the intricate inscribed verses bring the essence of faith into tangible existence.

“In these verses, Allah declares the truth. This emerald, adorned with this profound testimony, is not just a jewel. “It is a living testimony to the enduring beauty of faith.”

The journey of this rare gem dates back over 100 years when Habib Allem, a Middle Eastern adventurer, arrived on the enchanting shores of Cartagena in Colombia. According to legend, he bought this emerald as a gift for his wife. It has been passed down from generation to generation until Hernández bought it.

“Through generations, the emerald continued its journey, passing from hand to hand through faithful inheritance over the years until it came into my possession. It was more than just a business transaction. “It was an encounter with a story deeply rooted in the rich history of humanity, which bears witness to Arab migration and lasting family connections through time.”

Colombia has long been a miner and producer of the largest quantity of emeralds for the global market. Hernandez noted that his gemstone has been examined and verified by gem experts and is worth one million dollars.

“As you trace the elegant Arabic script with your eyes, may it be a reminder of the enduring power of faith, a source of inspiration and tranquility. “This unique gem is an invitation to become a custodian of a rare fusion of the earthly and the heavenly, where the wonders of nature meet the divine word.”

Hernández noted that the gem is a spiritual companion, an embodiment of the divine verses that have shaped civilizations.

“In a world often filled with hustle and bustle, this emerald provides a serene sanctuary, a tangible connection to the verses that have been a source of guidance for countless souls. It is a piece of history, a conduit to the eternal truth declared by Allah and recognized by those before us,” added Hernández from his stand A 21.

Organized by the Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, the five-day fair was inaugurated by Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council. The free-to-attend fair will be held at Manarat Al Saadiyat in Abu Dhabi until Sunday.
