Turquoise Gemstone Price

  • Turquoise stone price per carat depends upon Weight (carats/ratti), Treatments and Quality (Clarity and Color).
  • Natural Turquoise price in India is between rupees 175 per carat to rupees 600 per carat and above. Your first preference should be an Iranian Turquoise priced at Rs. 700 per carat or an American Turquoise (North American Turquoise) with the cost of Rs. 500 per carat. Your second preference should be an Iranian or an American Turquoise with cost between Rs. 250 and Rs. 400. American or a Tibetan turquoise costing in the range of Rs. 175 per carat are good for jewelry purposes and should be avoided if buying for astrological effects.
  • For Astrological purpose, purchasing Firoza gemstones priced above Rs 600 per carat does not make much sense as they are almost collector’s level or rare pieces.
  • Turquoise stone prices in India can be converted into Firoza stone price per Ratti by multiplying it by 0.9 (so, Rs 10,000/ct = Rs 9,000/ratti).
  • Price of Turquoise stone in India depends largely on the country of Origin. For example, Iranian Turquoise or Irani Firoza ratna price in India is between Rs. 300 per carat to Rs. 600 per carat depending upon quality. Most gemstone dealers sell synthetic Turquoises to unsuspecting customers. Therefore, make sure that you get your money’s worth and ask for a trusted lab certification mentioning tests for authenticity, origin and treatments.
