"Is it any wonder that we were quoted prices just over the $1,000 per carat mark at Tucson for luscious large spessartite? Months later, prices quoted to us for eye-clean, top-color 3 to 5 carat stones ranged from $400 to $800 per carat. If you didn't mind some gas bubbles or other small eye-visible inclusions, prices were generally half those for eye-clean stones."
