the issue that may be at fault here is the multiple rewards crafters are considering.on the one hand, there's the monetary reward of selling the item on the auction house, but on the other (and often, this is the more important thing) they're getting skillups. many items are sold at absurdly low prices simply because crafters are powerleveling and want to quickly get some portion of their gold back.those who aren't getting skillups, then, aren't getting a "full" reward for their items.i often see cut gems going for less than the mats it takes to make them on my server. how does that make 375 JCs feel? not good, i'm sure, but it's all part of the deal.

Cut gems sell for less because the market consists solely of the people who want that specific gem. Thus they won't sell as fast, if at all. It's easy to find a 375 JC who will cut anything for a small fee or even free, so it's much better to have uncut gems of given colors. Same situation goes with primals, which can be used by nearly every trade skill to craft numerous items.
