I counted roughly 50 stones. That's approximately 4 carats each. When cut you will be left with approximately a 1.5ct stone or less. The cost of having each stone cut would far outweigh their value.

I agree.

Depends on where they're cut - at a few dollars per stone in Sri Lanka or India, it might be easier to sell them as facets. At $50-250 per stone in the US or Europe, the cost of getting them cut far outweighs their value.

Would it cost less to cut them into cabochons /rose cut?
Maybe this way you could also save weight.

The best bet would be sending them to a commercial cutting house as cm366 said above...Thailand, India, or Sri Lanka where the cutting fees are very low.

The value of this material doesn't warrant spending for custom cutting, but would be worth cutting with minimal investment.

Sir

Yes, you can sell them. As previous people mentioned...a typical price for such stones is somewhere around 25 cents per carat. So the best outcome is that you will sell them for somewhere around $50 US dollars. That is the best outcome. The worst outcome is that no one will buy them.

I'm only trying to help you paint a realistic outcome.
