Hello all,

I have these stones - hope some of you can comment and tell me what the lot would be worth ? The cameras flash made the pics a bit light im sorry.

16 emeralds - just two are 0.10cts the rest are all from .45 ct to 1ct plus...

The two rubelites are very clean , good deep color 1 ct each +

The ruby is a nice deep red it has some transparency its over 3 ct's ( only low heated , no filling )

cheers

Trying to give an idea of value from a picture is impossible. You really need to talk to an appraiser/gemologist who can look at them closely and give you a better idea of value. The ruby particularly can have a wide range of values depending on whether it has been treated with anything besides heat. This needs to be tested and documented, taking the word of a seller about treatments is not documentation.

Thanks Michael.

Yes i agree the certification will be the best way... Maybe if i get the extra time,cash and proper Lab ill do it someday.

I did let a gemologist test and look at the goods , he is a friend of mine but doesn't cert goods though.. He said only treated stone was the ruby and it was only low heated.

What did he mean by low heated?
