This bright blue stone with black webbing measures 16.5x14mm with a 3mm dome and weighs 4.14 carats. This turquoise is 100% natural, personally mined and cut by us.

Turquoise is a very special gemstone...it is a stone connected to life! Two of its main components, phosphorous (much of which comes from ancient bone) and water are critical ingredients of life. Oxygen is also a key element, oxidizing the copper to give turquoise its beautiful colors. Turquoise is truly a gem dependent on a life-giving planet…a rarity, not just here on Earth, but throughout the Universe! Since the time of the ancients turquoise has been revered as a protector and a symbol of sky and water.

Because of its unique composition, each locality where turquoise is found imparts its own character on the stone. Each locality also has its own individual history. Some mines have been worked for turquoise many decades before we now have the fortunate opportunity to carry this history forward.

This Stone’s Provenance

This turquoise formed in ancient seafloor shale in the area that is now known as the Prince mine in Mineral County, Nevada near the Candelaria Mining District. This area is famous for its silver and turquoise. Although the Prince Mine is better known for its large veins and nuggets of minty green variscite, our operation there in 2005 produced a small amount of high grade, intense blue turquoise...a true rarity!

We hope you will find this stone as inspiring as we do!
