  1. Gems have always been a highly secretive profession. You can see a GIA (Gemological Institute of America?) certified person for an appraisal. Some good jewelers are also ceritified GIA people. They can give you honest appraisals for your gems. It does cost money, but they will give you a GIA certificate of appraisal, that you can show a prospective buyer. But honestly, don’t try to get into the business unless you have connections…Everything from diamonds to gemstones is a tightly run business, and you can lose your shirt.

  2. Greetings…
    On the wholesale market, it depends on a couple of factors:
    – Color Strength ( how deep or good of color )
    – Clarity ( how “clean” are the stones )
    – Carat ( how much weight or relative size )
    On average, I can tell you this:
    Garnet (Red): $2.00 per carat
    Amethyst ( Deep Purple ): $2.00-$5.00 per carat ( depending on origin and color strength
    -Topaz ( Swiss Blue ): $3.00 per carat
    This is as of the last AGTA Gem Show in Las Vegas approx 2 weeks ago….
    Hope that helps.

  7. With reference to the 430 Carat Alexandrite Gem Stone, the market appraisal value is estimated at USD $ 257 Million by a reputed Gem Laboratory
    As this is considered as the BIGGEST EVER Alexandrite found in the world to date, and it is also endorsed by the world famous German Gubelin Gem Lab and American Gem Laboratory in USA, it is definitely a Rare Gem Collectors’ Priceless Possession in time to come.
    If your Buyer takes a closer look at the 4 close-up images of the Alexandrite, some valuable chemical intrusions can be observed, which is very very rare !!!
    In this above context, please let me have your feedback OR YOUR BEST REASONABLE OFFER FROM your Prospective Buyer, at your earliest, to proceed further.
    Thanks & cheers !!!

    • It all depends on the color and if the color is not the result of some human process. Bright pink or red topaz, if extremely clean and if the individual stones are larger than 2-3 carats should be worth more than that. If you have stones that weight 1-7 grams each, and they are not coated or irradiated or altered in any other way, you should be talking to one of the big auction houses, maybe Sotheby’s or Christies as the both have branches in Hong Kong, and naturall red stones that are rare seen to do very well there. Most other topaz, with the exception of Imperial…(various colors), is very common. If your material is Imperial, use the advice I gave above. Most of the other topaz is far too common.(Natural blue is good, but, very difficult to determine.) Probably 99.995% of blue topaz is irradiated. Because of that, natural blue which is uncommon, does not bring the price it should. If you want, I could try to help you, but, you need to understand, I would expect a “finder’s fee”, and there is a good likelihood I might not want it, if not the rare type. Still, I am honest, (which is why I am not a billionaire 🙂 ), It is up to you. If you are not honest, please do not deal with me. JCH
