Green Turquoise Nuggets Tumbled High Grade 1 Pound Lot
We haven't seen anything like this in a long time, not since the old Kingman and Sleeping Beauty of the 70s and 80s! A range of bright greens to green-blues harmonize in perfect tumbled forms. These Green Turquoise Nuggets are very clean, with just a touch of matrix and spiderwebbing patterns, along with some light nugget crevices here and there. They are tumble polished to reveal the rich greens and warm caramel colored matrix. A rare find with color and character that is hard to match! This lot is new old stock, processed from an old stash of rough that was stored away for years. It has been sorted by size and contains rounded free-form nuggets 10mm and larger, up to 25mm (that's about 3/8" up to 1" inch). A large majority are in the 12mm to 16mm range. These stones are genuine stabilized Turquoise and any small fissures or crevices are natural remains of the nugget textures that have been edge ground and tumbled. They are one step away from beautiful cabochons, just slice down the middle and each half is ready to set. We did this to one pound of these stones and were able to get an 1800ct. yield of quality ready to use cabochons from 1 pound. At $1 per carat, that's 10x the value. You will receive one pound from the group pictured. Green Turquoise Nuggets like this are a rare and one of a kind opportunity, once this is gone we might not come across anything close to this again.
