OUR TRACEABILITY GUARANTEE
We are the only gem producer in the world equipped to supply a complete gemstone report on the unbroken chain of custody for our emeralds after mining.
We use integrated IT systems in the mines to track the date, place and time of extraction and the shape and weight of each crystal. Since 2018, we have achieved the Quality Systems Management ISO 9001 given every year, granted by Bureau Veritas, certifying the internal transformation and logistics processes that allow us to guarantee the origin and traceability of the stones throughout the emerald value chain.
This 'passport' for the stone comes complete with photographs. The certificate also provides details of the rough and the final state of the emerald and what treatment has been utilized.
The Muzo Mines comprise 5 mining shafts: Tequendama, Catedral, Volvere, Puerto Arturo and La Rampa.
For each of our emeralds, our exclusive traceability certificate tracks the gemstone's 'parent' crystal, with the exact place of extraction, shape and weight.
