Item #10459
Turqouise
Karkaraly, Karaganda Region, Kazakhstan

This wonderful half nodule of turquoise measures 7 x 6 x 2.7 cm. I bought this piece when they first came out and I have seen very few of this size and quality since. The turquoise blossoms remind me of happy clouds! There is a lot of fake turqouise (dyed howelite, for example) "available" from China...this is genuine turqqouise and very aesthetic. If you think about it, most turquoise does not really lend itself to being collected as a specimen in its raw form. This certainly does!
