Hello everyone, I have a few stones that I really need help identifying. There seems to be quite a DEA varieties of turquoise, I was getting ready to possibly list this specimen, is there anything that anyone can tell me about this? Is it unique in any way or just plain ol turquoise? Thanks in advance for reading this any input would be greatly appreciated.

Look for comps for similar stones on eBay and Etsy.

I agree, but still depends if a buyer goes for color and little association type stuff on your gemstone.

How does one arrive at a fair price for anything?
Comps.

You are respected gemstone specialist, and far more knowledgeable and experienced Barbra :).
Three main factors, either mistaken for something else, misunderstood, misguidance and deception by seller.
If there are other ways for comps to get fair prices do tell.

To answer the question of how much should Mazzalani ask for this stone, my answer is "not much"
