"EMERALD: ROMANCE IN THE STONE" Cartagena Shopping Tip by swesn
Cartagena Shopping: 13 reviews and 19 photos
The ’stone’ in question here is, of course, the emerald, which Cartagena is famous for. 98 percent of the world's emeralds are mined in Colombia.
There were many jewellery stores around the centre that sold emeralds. There was even one store called ‘Romance In The Stone’. A pun to the fun and funny treasure-hunting movie starring Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. Clever.
