Default The price of Ore

Hello I have PCs that are about to enter an area of the world in a mountain range that is rich in iron, as well gems. In a nearby trading city near the dwarven mines, I know they will want to purchase ore for the PC smith and maybe some gems for the PC wizard.

My questions is, how much should Ore cost right at the source? Or steel? Or fine quality steel bars? And the gems as well? If a gem goes for 175$ per caret on the open market, does that mean right at the source is may be 50$ per caret for an example?

And how to stop the breeding of economic chaos for the game? If a PC travels, buys 1000 in gems that he knows he can sell it back home for 3000 lets say. Or is that simply the way real things work?

thank you
