  • It is a family business where you can see as they are made and work the emeralds and the whole process of extraction and different types of esmeraldas, minas with stones with an excellent sample models and photographic reproductions, is one of the more complete visit very good explanation of course then offer you to sell their products. Prices seemed a little high, (although the price can fight if algote like) the best price I found it no doubt at cartagena airport after boarding on hand control right business called TIME LINE LOCAL 0203 and IS can BE FIGHT THE PRICE OF COUNTED EXCELLENT QUALITY PRICE VERY ECONOMIC ALREADY THAT THE EMPLOYEE I SAID THAT THEY NOT HAS THAT PAY to THE taxi DRIVERS or GUIDES TOURISM COMMISSION FOR bringing them to THE BUSINESS

  • To enter the jewelry store, you're taken to do a tour on the history of how to remove the emeralds of the rocks, the adults lapidate and explain its commercial value. After the tour you go into a room with several jewelry that are sold at fair prices. It's worth it.
