Question
Hi,

How much is a 1 carat faceted Black Star of India gemstone worth?

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kari

Answer
Hi Kari
The Black Star of India can mean 2 gemstones :
1. Diopside : a very cheap stone. You should be able to find one in the range of $2-$20.
2. Star Sapphire of dark bluish black color : natural star sapphires are expensive & the prices are generally subject to availability. You should be able to find one in the range of $100-$500 depending on the exact quality that you are looking for.
