Gemstone Rarity Pyramid: Precious Stone Rarity Compared!
The Rarity Pyramid sets forth stones without factoring elements that may dramatically effect value**. These elements are what we call market desirability. The pyramid’s goal is to give a new collector a general sense of a gemstone’s availability. Rows above the “White Diamond” row occur less often in nature. White diamonds and rows below it are available in abundance.
**Origin, size, clarity, color intensity, and other critical elements will dramatically change the level of rarity. For example, a blue sapphire from Kashmir, can potentially be more rare than a fancy colored diamond.**
