Opportunities are Infinite
Natural diamonds and gemstones are rare assets offering stability, scarcity and a means to transfer a huge amount of money into a small package. The young buyers, sometimes, do not invest in diamonds over the high cost of entry and due to legal restrictions, where it can be difficult to move around with diamonds. The millennials are not buying the classical vintages as they are setting up new rules for investment and seek innovative colours, where they want to build personalized physical investment portfolio using novel rare gemstones, instead of making use of alternative options for trade. The investment in stones like the imperial topaz, that is the gemstone found in yellow, pink – orange or pink colour and is one of the most precious November birthstones, provides a vivacious cavernous alternative to the plain white stones.
Imperial means Royal - the name was given by the Russian Tsars in the 17th century, who claimed their individual rights over the stone. It was first found in Brazil mines and nowadays, the stones can be found in the mines of Brazil, Nigeria, Russia, Burma, Australia and the US, furthermore, the typical colourless and blues can be found in Queensland and NSW. These stones can be processed with heat treatment to get a darker blue hue, though; the most desired natural ones are yellow to brown transparent in colour.
The Egyptians felt the stone got the colour from the glow of the sun and also, it was associated with the Jupiter God. Some believe it drives away sadness, depression, anxiety and increases the intellect of an individual. Some claim name Topaz came from Sanskrit word Tapas - which means, the one who possesses the fire of spiritual elevation. One of the biggest in the category - the El Dorado was found in 1984 in Minas Gerais that weighs 6.2 kg, though the pre-cut weight was 37 kg.
The most valuable include the rich pink ones, that can be worth up to $3500 a carat, but it is difficult to find a stone in higher carats like 3 to 5 carats in pink colour, otherwise, one can get it for $1000 a carat. Low-cost blue ones are easily available and can be found for $20 to $40 a carat at retail stores.
