Iolite Prices Gone Crazy?

An old client of mine who quit the business about twelve years ago brought me a ton of goods he wanted to clear out… including about 1000cts of commercial quality iolite.

These are goods that used to be quite cheap, but, I’m seeing this material selling for $8-$10ct in parcels and $30ct+++ as single stones/sets of 4-8 gems.

Prices jumped for gem quality Iolite since Tanzanite is getting harder to find. People like the darker blue shades of Iolite compared to the lighter purple of the Tanzanite now in the market. Kyanite from Nepal is also creeping up in prices.

Do you still have any of these stones? Are they cut or uncut? I have been looking for some Iolite to have cut of you still have some I would love to see what you have available.
