So, there are professionals who will appraise this boulder. They are called lapidaries. Most rock/mineral clubs and stores will have someone who is good in your area and they may give you a value for your sample. Get more than one. Some artists really like to work in jadeite. They may pay more. It is a beautiful sample.
