Yellow on the market
Nothing to be related with the current Thailand political turmoil, a lot of different yellow stones, old timers like sapphire and chrysoberyl and new comers like scapolite and heliodore (yellow beryl) are currently on offer on our market

Nothing to be related with the current Thailand political turmoil, a lot of different yellow stones, old timers like sapphire and chrysoberyl and new comers like scapolite and heliodore (yellow beryl) are currently on offer on our Chanthaburi market.
With the arrival of beryllium treatment, price of yellow sapphire, heated only material, is up in sizes 5 carats +. In sizes 3 to 5 carats, there is no increase and in sizes 3 and below, price is even going down to reach the price of beryllium treated material. The main reason is the fact that final buyers of this material do not care having beryllium treated goods...
Yellow scapolite is a quite new comer in our market, but the main news is the arrival of heliodore, yellow to golden color beryl, from Africa. Many stones are on offer in the 3 to 5 carats range and we even saw a couple of 20 carats of light color but clean stones. We wish good luck to this gemstone, newcomer in our market.
