Color is the most important criterion determining the cost of the gemstone.
Very dark gemstones, as well as very light ones, are valued lower. The gemstone's cost is also reduced by various shades that worsen the primary color (for example, yellowness in emerald. On the contrary, an emerald with a bluish tinge is valued higher). An essential role in setting the price is played by how often a particular gemstone color is found.
The stone's transparency is primarily the absence of defects or clarity of the gemstones (cracks, inclusions of minerals, etc.), which experts determine with a magnifying glass of 10x magnification. When examining a stone, it is necessary to know that the price reduction is strongly influenced by the contrast of inclusion and the location of the defect. For light gemstones, dark inclusion affects the price reduction more than fair inclusion. Respectively, for dark stones, weak inclusion reduces their price. Inclusions and cracks located in the center of the stone and near the surface affect the price reduction more than those found in an inconspicuous zone. That is, it is necessary to remember. If the disadvantages negatively affect the strength of the gemstone and its color, if they are very noticeable or there are many, then the price becomes much lower.
Absolutely clean, without internal defects, stones are rare, so their price is high. Usually, defects (defects) in cracks, "feathers," and solid inclusions are present in the stones.
