Ammolite Prices

Dear Orchid Members,

Due to health reasons I am forced to sell some gemstones that I have
collected over the years. For most of the items I have been able to
find approximate market prices for reference. However I have been
unable to find recent market prices for some ammolite that I purchased
about fifteen years ago. They are grade A+ (only AA is better
according to Korite grading system) Canadian material, not doublet or
triplets, very fine 360 degree visible color and very finely cut and
polished. One is a rectangle (25 x 20 x 3 mm) with intense
green/orange/red color. The other is a leaf shaped free form (40 x 15
x 3 mm), intense blue-green with minor orange/red highlights. I
understand that Korite is no longer selling gems of this quality and
is setting all of their production, but I am not sure. I have a buyer
who is interested but I don’t want to give away these goods. Any help
in setting an approximate carat or piece price would be appreciated. I
apologize for using this forum for anything approaching a commercial
use but this is an emergency. Your patience and help is greatly

International Box 1342, Fort Macleod AB, T0L 0Z0, 403-553-3565 They
compete directly with Korite. I met one of the owners Renieda Kemp
last summer. She was very friendly and helpful. She could probably help
you with the value of your ammolite.
