♦ GEMSTONE STORY
Turquoise is an opaque mineral that occurs in beautiful shades of blue, bluish green, green, and yellowish green. It has been treasured as a gemstone for thousands of years. Isolated from one another, the ancient people of Africa, Asia, South America and North America independently made turquoise one of their preferred materials for producing gemstones, inlay, and small sculptures.
Turquoise is found in only a few places on earth: dry and barren regions where acidic, copper-rich groundwater seeps downward and reacts with minerals that contain phosphorus and aluminum. The result of this sedimentary process is a porous, semitranslucent to opaque compound of hydrated copper and aluminum phosphate.
Turquoise is a prime example of an opaque colored stone that can be marketed both as a gem for jewelry and as an ornamental material.
Persian turquoise is typified by its prized bright robin egg blue colour. Some of the material is clear, bright turquoise blue and some features wonderful pyrite markings and others mottled white and turquoise reminiscent of the markings in larimar.
Most of the turquoise that is available for sale now is treated in some way, either stabilised to make it stronger and more suitable for cutting and use in jewellery and often it is also dyed as well. We now have two sources of totally natural turquoise, both the Persian turquoise and from Colorado, USA. Both these sources produce very high quality, hard, strong material with excellent colour.
Our beautiful 100% natural Persian turquoise cabochons have not been treated in any way. We have been lucky to be able to source this turquoise directly from the owners of a turquoise mine in Kerman, Iran, where it is also cut and polished by Iranian locals.
Turquoise has been mined in Iran for over 5,000 years and it is this turquoise that sets the quality standard for all turquoise.
