Probably has to due with the fact that epic gems are going for over 1k+ each on nearly any server that isn't Illidan.
I mean, even now, I've only got 4 Queen's Garnets and 1 Shadow Spinel (which I probably will never use) sitting in my bank to use for when I find a new piece of gear. I'm honestly probably gonna load up on em before I transfer. Even if I don't use them, I stand to make about a 700g profit per gem.
