Hi, Please help with Gemstone collection valuation / Identification

0 votes

Hello everyone, I have very limited knowledge of the value of gemstones / minerals / rocks. I have 20 photos. Please would anyone tell me if there are any items in this collection that are worth over $10 each. Which ones and how much is/are they worth by itself? Also, any other info or valuation/ rough appriasal would be very appreciated. So, how much do you think the whole collection would go for on ebay auction. Thanks so much for your help and info, cheers!

Here are 20 photos of the collection link: http://s1182.photobucket.com/user/uncblazer/embed/slideshow/Gemstone%20collection

Your pictures are very blurry. However, looking at your pictures those are mostly amateur collector items, with little value to anyone aside from amateur collectors.

Seriously, take some CLEAR photos, and not so many specimens in each one, I think the most valuable thing I saw were the one or possibly two fossils. However you do have an assortment of geodes and Agates that are well polished, as best as can be discerned from these out of focus pix.

I would suggest your best bet, figure out what each are, (beside the lack of clarity, there is nothing to compare in the photos, the SIZE of each specimen) and do searches on aBay's "completed listings", for the type and size/weight yours are, the numbers in green are the ones that SOLD for that price, it will give you the best idea on what people will buy and for how much! Good luck!!
