I have a Sugilite Necklace I purchased in 1997 from International Gem Show vendor from Africa. I posted it for sale on Posh and a woman commented that I should not list it as a rare gemstone, because her brother lives in Ghana and sugilite is prevalent there. So my question is, what do I say to my potential customers under her comment? I had researched prior and I found numerous articles that it was rare. Thank you for any input.
Here is a picture of the necklace
I’m not sure how to load the pictures, sorry. Any help appreciated.
