I recently return from the 2015 Tucson Show and the high cost of minerals is on my mind

You can put the price with the mineral: The minerals on this page are listed at $1,500, $22,000, $16,000, $1,750 and $16,000 (not in that order).

The large Amazonite cluster is valued at $1,000,000.  Dealers often prefer I do not show the prices they list for a mineral but the Amazonite piece is now part of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and the cost has been reported in news reports.
