    I'm not an expert but this doesn't look like facetable material so I would guess not much.

    Cost to have it turned into something? Or how much is it worth?

    Depends first if it is genuine natural ruby or some other material. How big it is, quality of the stone and if it is facetable or not.

    Thanks for the answers. I am understood. Looks like a metal ore and knife (for example): first cost 50 dollars for mt, second - 100 dollars for 100 gramm. Maybe, someone from Europe take this stone for processing? Without money. But result we will be sellin together.
    There are two stones. First have 7.5 kilo, second - 6 kilogram.

    You want somebody else to process it at their expense and if it turns into something useful, then they will get a cut? o_O:wall:

    No one is going to cut and polish stuff for free.

    I thought it was a ruby? And yes, to have it evaluated and cut (if it is even worth cutting) will cost money.

    Can tell you that you're going to need to have some knowledge about what you have. No one is going to be able to tell you exactly what you have through a picture... could be dyed granite/glass/some weird composite for all we know.

    If you've purchased them, best bet send one to an independent lab. They can tell you what you have. If you don't want to go that route, find an rock hound who isn't going to charge you too much to see if you can at least get some answers.

    Doing that through pictures...thats a no, that type of thing needs to be done in person.

    If you want someone to cut them, just know you're not going to find anyone to do so for free. There might be smaller cutting houses in Thailand that would do it on the cheap but might be be the best cut stuff. If you want high level precision cutting, you're going to pay for it.

    Anyway this is really not the place for that type of discussion as this is a consumer board.
