Krystina, You have asked a loaded (difficult) question which raises
more questions before it can be answered. Questions such as: are you
talking about cut stones or rough? If cut, what are the designs? If
rough, is it good rough in terms of potential yield, is it included or
clear, blocky or blades, clear or milky, etc. Is the topaz natural or
radiated? Is the citrine natural or treated? Is the amethyst natural
or synthetic? If natural what is its origin and what is the quality?
What kind of garnet? Rhodolite? Malaya, Tsavorite? Pyrope. Whats
color and clarity?
You need to be cautious about any “good deal”, especially regarding
gem stones as “one does not normally get something for nothing”… Try
to find a trusted local person knowledgeable about gem stones and seek
their opinion in such matters. Check the internet for additional
…there are hundreds of sites selling gems and you can get
some price/quality from them. I could go on and on…
just be cautious.
