Hand-cut & polished Kingman Mine Turquoise

The name turquoise, from the French expression Pierre tourques or Turkish stone, originated in the thirteenth century and describes one of the oldest known gemstones. 

This is rare turquoise found in the Kingman Mine, in the USA. It is cut and polished by handDrilling holes for stringing is most precarious, and most of these huge nobles split in two. As I consider a purchase, I examine each strand for crack or flaws. 

Most turquoise varies in color from greenish blue, through robin's egg-blue, to sky blue shades and its transparency ranges from translucent  to opaque. The Kingman Mine turquoise yields very intense color and is the highest quality in the world.
