Wrath Gems Still Profitable?

My DK, who happens to be my JC wracked up all of the most useful gem cuts during Wrath.  Like many people, since Cataclysm hit I've been solely focusing on the market of Cata gems, and my Wrath recipes have been sitting idly.  I recently came across a stack of raw Majestic Zircon for 80g a pop.  I cut these into Solid Majestic Zircon (Stamina) and was able to sell every last one for 215g each.  After AH fees, thats about an 125 gold Profit per gem!!

2) TradeSkillMaster (TSM) - This add-on is GREAT for posting auctions quickly and efficiently, at least twice as fast as Auctionator, but you need to be willing to take the time to set it up, as it is a very bulky add-on. By far my favorite add-on to date. I pers…
