Valuable Paraiba tourmaline and rare gems, worthless Paraiba and rare gems

Don't be fooled by rare gems! ! ( Paraiba, Demantoid, Arechi Cats, Grandidierite, etc.)

The most important point is
① Being rare and rare
②It is rare and valuable.

These two are completely different things.
A common tactic used by malicious traders is to bring in extremely poor quality gemstones that are said to be rare, and then sell them at a high price, claiming that they are valuable because they are rare.
We receive many inquiries from customers, but it is the same deceptive method.
The other day, I bought a 10ct piece of Paraiba tourmaline for 1,800,000 yen, but I was asked to see if it was really worth it, but the souvenir shop sells it for 10,000 to 20,000 yen. Well, it was a paraiba tourmaline rough stone that had no transparency, was dirty, and couldn't even be cut, and was simply shaved to adjust its shape a little.
It was indeed a Paraiba tourmaline, but it had no value as a gemstone.
Please note that stories like this are actually common.



Our Paraiba is 10ct, highly transparent, highly fluorescent, well cut, extremely rare, and highly valuable.
These two are completely different things.

Recently, I was asked, ``I've been recommended Demantoid 4CT, but what do you think?''
Demantoid is transparent and has a beautiful color, the horsetail is visible, and if it is 4 carat, it is very valuable, and a good one can cost around 10 million yen.
However, the demantoid I was shown had zero transparency, was cloudy, dark in color, lacked texture, was of poor quality, had no value as a gemstone, and cost around 100,000 yen.
This kind of dealer's trick is to target jewelry fans who have a certain level of knowledge.



In order to avoid being deceived, look carefully at whether something is beautiful before considering whether it is worth it or not.
If something is rare and not beautiful, it has no value.
Most of them are used for scams.
There is a difference between being rare and unusual and being rare and valuable.

Bad dealers will cleverly try to persuade you that you should buy the stone because it is rare and hard to obtain, but they will tell you that the stone has almost no transparency, is bad in color, is full of inclusions, is full of cracks, or looks like raw stone. Please note that even if it is rare or large, it has no value as a gemstone.
It is important to buy jewelry that you will not regret after purchasing it.
