Had QUADRUPLED from the PREVIOUS YEAR! These prices are really going crazy. And the vendors that sell only these stones at the gem and. Mineral shows are set up for a few days, and then closed b/c they sell out! It is the only vendor that I have ever seen that sells out their entire inventory.

Despite its low hardness relative to other gems, turquoise takes a good polish. Turquoise may also be peppered with flecks of. Or interspersed with dark, spidery. Turquoise apparently forms by the action of percolating acidic aqueous solutions during the. For example, the copper may come from primary copper sulfides such as. Or from the secondary carbonates. The aluminium may derive from. And the phosphorus from. Climate factors appear to play an important role as turquoise is typically found in. Regions, filling or encrusting cavities and fractures in typically highly altered. Rocks, often with associated. And other iron oxides. In the American southwest turquoise is almost invariably associated with the weathering products of copper sulfide deposits in or around potassium feldspar bearing porphyritic. Potassium aluminium sulfate, is a prominent secondary mineral. Typically turquoise mineralization is restricted to a relatively shallow depth of less than 20 metres (66 ft), although it does occur along deeper fracture zones where secondary solutions have greater penetration or the depth to the water table is greater. Although the features of turquoise occurrences are consistent with a secondary or. Origin, some sources refer to a. Hypothesis, which holds that the aqueous solutions originate at significant depth, from. Initially at high temperature, these solutions rise upward to surface layers, interacting with and leaching essential elements from pre-existing minerals in the process. As the solutions cool, turquoise precipitates, lining cavities and fractures within the surrounding rock. This hypogene process is applicable to the original copper sulfide deposition; however, it is difficult to account for the many features of turquoise occurrences by a hypogene process. That said, there are reports of two phase. Within turquoise grains that give elevated homogenization temperatures of 90 to 190 °C that require explanation. Turquoise is nearly always cryptocrystalline and massive and assumes no definite external shape. Crystals, even at the microscopic scale, are exceedingly rare.

These are all small-scale, often seasonal operations, owing to the limited scope and remoteness of the deposits. Most are worked by hand with little or no mechanization. However, turquoise is often recovered as a byproduct of large-scale copper mining operations, especially in the United States. Cutting and grinding turquoise in. For at least 2,000 years, the region once known as. Has remained an important source of turquoise.

Called “Country of Turquoise” by the native. There are six mines in the region, all on the southwest coast of the peninsula, covering an area of some 650 square kilometres (250 sq mi). The two most important of these mines, from a historic perspective, are. Believed to be among the oldest of known mines. The former mine is situated about 4 kilometres from an ancient temple dedicated to. The turquoise is found in sandstone that is, or was originally, overlain by. Copper and iron workings are present in the area. Large-scale turquoise mining is not profitable today, but the deposits are sporadically quarried by. In the rainy winter months, miners face a risk from. Even in the dry season, death from the collapse of the haphazardly exploited sandstone mine walls is not unheard of. The colour of Sinai material is typically greener than Iranian material, but is thought to be stable and fairly durable. Often referred to as. Turquoise, Sinai material is typically the most translucent, and under magnification its surface structure is revealed to be peppered with dark blue discs not seen in material from other localities.

Is a significant source of turquoise. Counties are (or were) especially rich. The deposits of California and New Mexico were mined by. Using stone tools, some local and some from as far away as central. New Mexico is thought to be the location of the oldest mines; prior to the 1920s, the state was the country’s largest producer; it is more or less exhausted today. Only one mine in California, located at. Operates at a commercial capacity today. The turquoise occurs as vein or seam fillings, and as compact nuggets; these are mostly small in size. While quite fine materialrivalling Iranian material in both colour and durabilityis sometimes found, most American turquoise is of a low grade (called “chalk turquoise”); high iron levels mean greens and yellows predominate, and a typically friable consistency precludes use in. In the turquoise’s untreated state. Arizona is currently the most important producer of turquoise by value. Two mines exist in the state, one is the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Globe, the other is the Kingman Mine that operates alongside a copper mine outside of the city. Nevada is the country’s other major producer, with more than 120 mines which have yielded significant quantities of turquoise. Unlike elsewhere in the US, most Nevada mines have been worked primarily for their gem turquoise and very little has been recovered as a byproduct of other mining operations. Nevada turquoise is found as nuggets, fracture fillings and in breccias as the cement filling interstices between fragments. Because of the geology of the Nevada deposits, a majority of the material produced is hard and dense, being of sufficient quality that no treatment or enhancement is required. While nearly every county in the state has yielded some turquoise, the chief producers are in Lander and Esmeralda Counties. Most of the turquoise deposits in Nevada occur along a wide belt of. Activity that coincides with the state’s zone of. About N15°E and extends from the northern part of Elko County, southward down to the California border southwest of Tonopah. Nevada has produced a wide diversity of colours and mixes of different matrix patterns, with turquoise from Nevada coming in various shades of blue, blue-green, and green. Some of this unusually coloured turquoise may contain significant zinc and iron, which is the cause of the beautiful bright green to yellow-green shades. Some of the green to green yellow shades may actually be. Which are secondary phosphate minerals similar in appearance to turquoise. A significant portion of the Nevada material is also noted for its often attractive brown or black limonite veining, producing what is called “spiderweb matrix”. While a number of the Nevada deposits were first worked by Native Americans, the total Nevada turquoise production since the 1870s has been estimated at more than 600 tons, including nearly 400 tons from the Carico Lake mine. In spite of increased costs, small scale mining operations continue at a number of turquoise properties in Nevada, including the Godber, Orvil Jack and Carico Lake Mines in Lander County, the Pilot Mountain Mine in Mineral County, and several properties in the Royston and Candelaria areas of Esmerelda County. Untreated turquoise, Nevada USA. Rough nuggets from the McGinness Mine, Austin; Blue and green cabochons showing spiderweb, Bunker Hill Mine, Royston. In 1912, the first deposit of distinct, single-crystal turquoise was discovered in. The crystals, forming a. Over the mother rock, are very small; 1 mm (0.04 in) is considered large. Until the 1980s Virginia was widely thought to be the only source of distinct crystals; there are now at least 27 other localities. In an attempt to recoup profits and meet demand, some American turquoise is treated or. To a certain degree. These treatments include innocuous waxing and more controversial procedures, such as dyeing and impregnation see. There are however, some American mines which produce materials of high enough quality that no treatment or alterations are required. Has been a minor source of turquoise for 3,000 years or more. Gem-quality material, in the form of compact nodules, is found in the fractured, silicified. Reported turquoise found in present-day.

Despite being one of the oldest gems, probably first introduced to. Novelties, turquoise did not become important as an ornamental stone in the West until the 14th century, following a decline in the. S influence which allowed the use of turquoise in secular jewellery. It was apparently unknown in. Period, and unknown in. Until the 18th century. A common belief shared by many of these civilizations held that turquoise possessed certain prophylactic qualities; it was thought to change colour with the wearer’s health and protect him or her from untoward forces. The Aztecs inlaid turquoise, together with. Into provocative (and presumably ceremonial). Were used to bond the turquoise to the objects’ base material; this was usually. And shell were also used. Like the Aztecs, the. Tribes cherished turquoise for its amuletic use; the latter tribe believe the stone to afford the. Among these peoples turquoise was used in. Inlay, in sculptural works, and was fashioned into toroidal beads and freeform pendants. And surrounding region are believed to have prospered greatly from their production and trading of turquoise objects. Jewelry produced by the Navajo and other Southwestern Native American tribes today is a rather modern development, thought to date from circa 1880 as a result of European influences. In Persia, turquoise was the. National stone for millennia, extensively used to decorate objects from. And other important buildings both inside and out, such as the Medresseh-I Shah Husein Mosque of. The Persian style and use of turquoise was later brought to.

Where a greener hue is said to be preferred. Most of the pieces made today, with turquoise usually roughly polished into irregular cabochons set simply in silver, are meant for inexpensive export to Western markets and are probably not accurate representations of the original style. The Egyptian use of turquoise stretches back as far as the. And possibly earlier; however, probably the most well-known pieces incorporating the gem are those recovered from.

Burial sites in the. Excavations of Egypt from the mid-19th century through the early 20th. These excavations, including that of Tutankhamun’s tomb, created great public interest in the western world, subsequently influencing jewellery. Turquoise, already favoured for its pastel shades since c. 1810, was a staple of. In contemporary Western use, turquoise is most often encountered cut.

The turquoise is also a stone in the Jewish. In many cultures of the Old and New Worlds, this gemstone has been esteemed for thousands of years as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or a talisman. It really does have the right to be called a’gemstone of the peoples’. The oldest evidence for this claim was found in. Where grave furnishings with turquoise inlay were discovered, dating from approximately 3000 BC. The sky-blue gemstones were earlier worn round the neck or wrist as protection against unnatural death. If they changed colour, the wearer was thought to have reason to fear the approach of doom. Meanwhile, it has been discovered that the turquoise certainly can change colour, but that this is not necessarily a sign of impending danger. The change can be caused by the light, or by a chemical reaction brought about by cosmetics, dust or the acidity of the skin. The Egyptians were the first to produce an artificial imitation of turquoise, in the glazed earthenware product. Were also used, and in modern times more sophisticated ceramics. And various assembled, pressed, bonded, and. Products (composed of various copper and aluminium compounds) have been developed: examples of the latter include “Viennese turquoise”, made from precipitated. And “neolith”, a mixture of. Most of these products differ markedly from natural turquoise in both physical and chemical properties, but in 1972. Introduced one fairly close to a true. (it does differ in chemical composition owing to a binder used, meaning it is best described as a simulant rather than a synthetic). Gilson turquoise is made in both a uniform colour and with black “spiderweb matrix” veining not unlike the natural Nevada material. Some natural blue to blue-green materials, such as this botryoidal. With quartz drusy, are occasionally confused with, or used to imitate turquoise. The most common imitation of turquoise encountered today is dyed. Both white in their natural states, and the former also having natural (and convincing) black veining similar to that of turquoise. Is less common, and much less convincing. Other natural materials occasionally confused with or used in lieu of turquoise include. Or “bone turquoise”, coloured blue naturally by the mineral. While rarely encountered today, odontolite was once mined in large quantitiesspecifically for its use as a substitute for turquoisein southern. These fakes are detected by. Using a number of tests, relying primarily on non-destructive, close examination of surface structure under magnification; a featureless, pale blue background peppered by flecks or spots of whitish material is the typical surface appearance of natural turquoise, while manufactured imitations will appear radically different in both colour (usually a uniform dark blue) and texture (usually granular or sugary). Glass and plastic will have a much greater translucency, with bubbles or flow lines often visible just below the surface. Staining between grain boundaries may be visible in dyed imitations. Some destructive tests may, however, be necessary; for example, the application of diluted hydrochloric acid will cause the. Odontolite and magnesite to. And howlite to turn green, while a heated probe may give rise to the pungent smell so indicative of plastic. Light absorption as evident in a material’s. , and other physical and optical properties are also considered as means of separation. An early turquoise mine in the Madan village of Khorasan. Turquoise is treated to enhance both its colour and durability i. As is so often the case with any precious stones, full disclosure about treatment is frequently not given. It is therefore left to. To detect these treatments in suspect stones using a variety of testing methodssome of which are necessarily destructive. For example, the use of a heated probe applied to an inconspicuous spot will reveal oil, wax, or plastic treatment with certainty. Historically, light waxing and oiling were the first treatments used in ancient times, providing a wetting effect, thereby enhancing the colour and lustre. This treatment is more or less acceptable by tradition, especially because treated turquoise is usually of a higher grade to begin with. Oiled and waxed stones are prone to “sweating” under even gentle heat or if exposed to too much sun, and they may develop a white surface film or bloom over time. With some skill, oil and wax treatments can be restored. Material treated with plastic or water glass is termed “bonded” or “stabilized” turquoise. This process consists of pressure impregnation of otherwise unsaleable chalky American material by. Water glass (sodium silicate). To produce a wetting effect and improve durability. Plastic and water glass treatments are far more permanent and stable than waxing and oiling, and can be applied to material too chemically or physically unstable for oil or wax to provide sufficient improvement. Conversely, stabilization and bonding are rejected by some as too radical an alteration. The epoxy binding technique was first developed in the 1950s and has been attributed to Colbaugh Processing of Arizona, a company that still operates today. The majority of American material is now treated in this manner although it is a costly process requiring many months to complete. Without such impregnation, most American mining operations would be unprofitable. And other dyes (often in conjunction with bonding treatments) to “enhance”that is, make uniform or completely changecolour is regarded as fraudulent by some purists. Especially since some dyes may fade or rub off on the wearer. Dyes have also been used to darken the veins of turquoise. Perhaps the most radical of treatments is “reconstitution”, wherein fragments of fine turquoise material, too small to be used individually, are powdered and then bonded to form a solid mass. Much, if not all, of this “reconstituted” material is likely. With no natural components, or may have foreign filler material added to it. Not well known, but some turquoise is irradiated to become less “chalky”. This treatment is rarely disclosed. Like all irradiated gemstones, it should be tested by a. Since finer turquoise is often found as thin seams, it may be. To a base of stronger foreign material as a means of reinforcement. These stones are termed “Backed” and it is standard practice that all thinly cut turquoise in the Southwestern United States is backed. Of this region, because of their considerable use and wearing of turquoise, found that backing increased the durability of thinly cut slabs and cabs of turquoise. They observed that if the stone was not backed it would, for the most part, end up cracking. Early backing materials were the casings of old model T batteries and progressed to old phonograph records and most recently to the use of epoxy steel resins. Backing of turquoise is not known outside of the. And Southwestern United States jewelry trade. The value of turquoise of the highest quality is not discounted because it is backed and indeed the process is expected for most thinly cut American commercial gemstones. Slab of turquoise in matrix showing a large variety of different colouration. Hardness and richness of colour are two of the major factors in determining the value of turquoise; while colour is a matter of individual taste, generally speaking, the most desirable is a strong sky to “robin’s egg” blue in reference to the eggs of the. Whatever the colour, turquoise should not be excessively soft or chalky; even if treated, such lesser material (to which most turquoise belongs) is liable to fade or discolour over time and will not hold up to normal use in jewellery. The mother rock or. In which turquoise is found can often be seen as splotches or a network of brown or black veins running through the stone in a netted pattern; this veining may add value to the stone if the result is complementary, but such a result is uncommon. Such material is sometimes described as “spiderweb matrix”; it is most valued in the. But is not highly appreciated in the. Where unblemished and vein-free material is ideal (regardless of how complementary the veining may be). Uniformity of colour is desired, and in finished pieces the quality of workmanship is also a factor; this includes the quality of the polish and the symmetry of the stone. Calibrated stonesthat is, stones adhering to standard jewellery setting measurementsmay also be more sought after. In many different ways, some more permanent and radical than others. Controversy exists as to whether some of these treatments should be acceptable, but one can be more or less forgiven universally: This is the. Applied to most gem turquoise to improve its colour and lustre; if the material is of high quality to begin with, very little of the wax or oil is absorbed and the turquoise therefore does not “rely” on this impermanent treatment for its beauty. All other factors being equal, untreated turquoise will always command a higher price. Bonded and “reconstituted” material is worth considerably less. Mineral, turquoise is inherently fragile and sensitive to solvents. Will attack the finish and may alter the colour of turquoise gems, as will skin oils, as will most commercial jewelry cleaning fluids. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight may also discolour or dehydrate turquoise. Care should therefore be taken when wearing such jewels: cosmetics, including. Should be applied before putting on turquoise jewellery, and they should not be worn to a beach or other sun-bathed environment. After use, turquoise should be gently cleaned with a soft cloth to avoid a build up of residue, and should be stored in its own container to avoid scratching by harder gems. Turquoise can also be adversely affected if stored in an airtight container. The Sleeping Beauty Mine. Sleeping Beauty Mine located in Globe, Arizona is considered to be one of the most important turquoise producing mines in the world. The Sleeping Beauty Mine history began with its storybook name; some say that from a distance the mountain looks like a sleeping woman and with a little imagination it does. The mountain was named long before it was mined, but once the mine opened it adopted the iconic name. The Sleeping Beauty Mine history started more than 40 years ago when it was originally mined for gold and copper. The Sleeping Beauty Mine closed in the early 60s and over the last decade was reopened to mine copper and turquoise. Now the Sleeping Beauty Mine is the worlds largest producer of natural turquoise. The Sleeping Beauty Mine history was made through its impeccable turquoise. Arguably the largest producer of turquoise in the world, the Sleeping Beauty Mine is the largest producer of turquoise in the United States. Sleeping Beauty stones are some of the most desirable stones produced in the world. Sleeping beauty stones are unique in color and quality anywhere from chalky-blue to sky-blue to deep-blue turquoise. Closed to the public the mine is in full operation producing some of the worlds most coveted turquoise. The process of mining turquoise is simple to understand but takes a lot of work and time. The turquoise begins in the ground and is uncovered by removing the top-layer of ground. Once removed from the earth its then moved to the pickers who sift through each piece sorting between rock and turquoise. The turquoise is then taken to the chippers who chip the rock away from the stone and the stone is then sorted by shape, quality and color. Turquoise comes from the ground either in a flat piece, a nugget or large chunk. The desired color of stone is largely dependent upon the area. For example, Egyptians prefer the dark-blue turquoise where as the Italians prefer the light-blue turquoise. Stabilizing the stone makes the turquoise resilient to color change and more practical for use in turquoise jewelry. Over the years, the Sleeping Beauty Mine has made a name for itself through its storybook name, gold and copper production, and now top-quality turquoise. The production of the stone is in popular demand and although Chinas production of turquoise may rival the Sleeping Beauty Mine, the quality is unmatched. Sleeping beauty turquoise can be found in the southwestern part of the United States in Arizona. The highly sought after stone has made a tremendous impact on the history of turquoise over the years. The stone got its name because the mountain where it is mined resembles a sleeping woman laying on her back with arms crossed. We heard rumors that the Sleeping Beauty mine in Globe Arizona has closed, so we contacted the mine headquarters directly to get the real story. Unfortunately, the rumors are true. The mine has been closed to turquoise mining since august 2012. The owners of the mine decided to concentrate on copper mining only as the price of copper has risen significantly. There are no plans to open the mine up to turquoise mining in the future. What is left of the Sleeping Beauty turquoise rough stones is going fast. Buyers from Europe and Asia are grabbing as much as they can get, resulting in a quickly diminishing inventory. Once it is gone, there is no more! This is bad news for Sleeping Beauty turquoise jewelry lovers. Because of this closure, jewelry with Sleeping Beauty turquoise settings just got more expensive. If you watch the television jewelry shows like QVC and HSN you already know the prices are going up.
