    Not necessarily. As someone else mentioned, it depends on the quality of stones.

    Color is very important when we talk about colored stones. Not just the quality of the color (ie saturation & tone) but also simply - what color it is.

    To cut a long answer short - commercially valuable stones include blue sapphires, pink sapphires, padparascha sapphires, imperial topaz, pink topaz and orange topaz. Other varieties may not be so valuable. For e.g. green sapphires, yellow sapphires, black sapphires, bi-color sapphires, blue topaz, white topaz, brown topaz, mystic topaz and so on.

    That said, "all things equal", the price of a good blue sapphire is almost always higher than a good imperial topaz.

    Diamond - very high Emerald - very high Ruby - very high Sapphire - high (Ruby and Sapphire are both Corundum) Aquamarine - medium to high Amethyst - medium (this is Quartz) Jade - low (Jade) to very high (Jadeite) Opal - low to high Topaz - low to medium Amber - low to medium Turquoise - low Malachite - not listed, but it's a carbonate (calcite), so I'd say low.

    Yes. Sappire is a precious stone. Topaz is only semi-precious.

    Generally, yes. It depends on the overall quality - cut, clarity, and color of the stones. Check out this site for more info:
