RAPAPORT... Gemfields plc concluded the sale of mostly lower-quality rough ruby and corundum from its Montepuez ruby deposit in Mozambique, achieving $16.1 million at an average price of $4.03 per carat. The sale was 99 percent sold by lot.

With three ruby auctions now concluded since June, Gemfields has collected $92.9 million in revenue from its ruby operations. The recent sale was held in Jaipur, India, where Gemfields offered lower-quality material to build an understanding of the downstream market in order to optimize its long-term ruby auction format, according to the company.
