The International Gem Society (IGS) has a list of businesses offering gemstone appraisal services.

Top values go to clarity first, with color a close second. Since beryls are available in large sizes, there is usually no incremental price increase for large beryls.  All beryls hold the same value above about three carats. (Red beryl is an exception).

  • Emerald: very strong bluish green to green, tone 3 to 8, saturation 2 to 5. Top color: vstbG 5/5; bG 5/5 or 6/5; vslbG 5/5
  • Green beryl: slyG 4/3
  • Morganite: slpR 3/4
  • Heliodor: Y 4/4
