In Munich - and I have confirm - for the Amgala the moroccan person ask
$1500 and this is $1.5/gr.....no problems, I see the same person in Bologna
in March and I ask how much he want, for sure I not buy why give all this
money for a normaly moroccan fall its exaggerated

>A lot sold between E$3 and E$4 a gram. (Munich value
>E$1 = US$1.27). I know the 1.5 kilos matteo is talking

>that was turned down. I dont know what this eventually

>for it earlier.
>As far as the 2 kilos that I offered to this list goes

>for in munich
>and the value of amgala has held up after months of
>offerings much better than I expected which gives me
>reason to believe that there is not a lot of material
>hidden - at least not by many people anyway.
>But right now my $2.95 a gram price is very low for
>amgala. I believe that the hupes earlier today in a
>posting to this list mentioned a 3.7 classification
>(See archaives). If that holds up the price likely
>wont fall much more (Unless loads more is discovered
>to be hidden by some moroccans - you can bet that the
>strewnfield itself is picked pretty dry by now) . But
>as somebody said earlier in the week "Will it be 95
>cents next week?". It was selling for 4 times that in
>munich so somebody will lose out if that happens - but
>since dealers were willingly paying much more than
>matteos US$1 a gram directly from the moroccans in
>Munich I wouldent hold my breath.
>Here is my sale webpage again. Much has been sold and
>people who have received the material has emailed me
>saying how much that they loved their stones. I shoudl
>be around the next few hours if somebody wants more.
