What's the best ore to prospect?

Professions
So until lately I've always been prospecting Ghost Iron Ore.

Are there better options out there? Is Kyrapite, or whatever it's called, better/cheaper to prospect?

I'm not sure of all the different kinds of Ore in MoP so just wanna make sure I'm spending my money efficiently.
What are you prospecting for? Feed your JC/Alch? Resell gems?
In terms of gems' drop rate GIO and Kyparite are the same, just last one stack up to 200 unit so is more efficient in terms of bag space. Buy the cheapest one.

If you're after making gold out of prospect, do not limit yourself to MoP ores. Have a look at lower mats needed by JCs who powerskill, there are many guides 'bout it on net. i'm still prospectingTin Ore/Thorium Ore/Adamantite Ore/Elementium Ore. Check your server's prices and see if you can get some profit

Thank you for your reply.

I'm prospecting for Jewelcrafting
actually kyrapite has 100% chance of dropping sparkling gems
Cataclysm ore prospecting is sometimes very profitable because people often put these ores at retardly low prices while the mats you get from this are worth a small fortune!

Tin ore -> Moss Agate
Cata ores -> Green gems -> Jewelery -> HYPNOTIC DUST (extremely expensive on most servers)
Cata ores -> Blue gems -> JC weapon -> Vendor it for 24 gold (gems vendor for 19,2)
