"but the stone may only fetch a real price once people start making offers for it" - duh, it changed hands twice already! From the original owner, to its new owners, after Elzas (someone who actually knows colored diamonds) classified it. I believe it already fetched a price - if someone could only tell us how much!

As a matter of fact, it is very expensive... I am not an expert, but that's 32+ carat, certified by GIA. That means it can get a whopping price if they ever decide to sell it. See information how carat is calculated below:

Diamonds are often valued (and usually priced) on a per carat basis. Thus, a one half carat diamond that has a total value of $1,000 USD, will be said to have a per carat value of $2,000 USD. A 1.50 carat diamond for sale in a jewelry store that is priced at $5,000 USD per carat will cost you $7,500 USD to purchase. While you might expect larger carat weight diamonds to be more valuable, the increase in value is often quite surprising; increasing the weight by 100% sometimes increases the value by almost 400%. Certain carat weights are more highly favored than others. There is a significant increase in value for a diamond that has a carat weight that is exactly at or greater than .25, .33, .50, .75, 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, 1.75, 2.00 (or other higher multiple of .50 carat weight, as compared to a diamond that is less than such carat weight. For example, a diamond that with a .95 carat weight may sell for $11,000 USD per carat, but an equivalent diamond (one that only differs in carat weight) of 1.00 carat weight will sell for $12,000 USD per carat.
