Wow, what a fantastic Tourmaline here, with an exceptional fancy laser cut and bright Minty Green color.
This gemstone comes with the pictured appraisal certificate from a GIA Graduate Gemologist in the San Diego Jewelry District. For those who don’t know how appraisal values are determined, they are done in two ways. Some appraisers assign a retail value, whereas others give a replacement value. As you can see, the appraisal value for this piece is a replacement value, meaning that it’s the value it would cost an insurance company to replace the item. And because insurance companies use wholesalers to replace lost or damaged goods, replacement values are considered wholesale, generally around 50% of a retail value. That means that this stone, in a jewelry store, would sell in the range of $2,800. And as you can see, the price we are asking is well below even the wholesale replacement value.
I took pictures of this stone in high magnification against a white background to give you the best idea of color and quality. As a certified gemologist I can verify that the above description is accurate and that this stone/stones have been tested in the gem lab to verify identity and natural origin.
Color: Pale to Medium Minty Green
Shape: Fancy Laser Octagon
The Gemstone Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Gemologist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
