Scapolite Value

Yellow scapolite’s value depends on sizeclarity, and strength of color. Expect the usual premiums on price in terms of color saturation and custom versus native or commercial cutting. Values for natural purple or violet scapolites differ greatly from Yellow stones, since the untreated stones are rarer and have a delicate, but much purer, purple. Prices for untreated purple stones would exceed yellow, while prices for Scapolite purple stones High.

Rare cat’s eye scapolites are highly varied and quite beautiful.

Cabochons cut from opaque Quebec and Ontario material are very lovely and often fluoresce brightly.

Tanzanian golden scapolite is much darker in tone than the Brazilian material, as well as much cleaner. Moreover, there is enough available to make jewelry promotion feasible.
