Large Number 8 Green Turquoise Rough High Grade Sliced One Pound Lot
Pre-Sliced so you can see what your getting and save time! This Number 8 Turquoise Rough is a little more on the green side. The greener appearance is partly from the way the golden caramel mother-stone mixes with the turquoise, but the Turquoise is also more aqua green overall. The spiderweb patterns and nodules float across each Number 8 Turquoise slab like clouds in the sky. The color and patterns of Number 8 Turquoise have made it a favorite centerpiece in high end southwest and Native American jewelry. We use Number 8 Turquoise in some of our top selling jewelry designs. This sliced Turquoise has been grouped and graded based on color and size to give you the highest possible yield when cutting gemstones. Check out the last photo to see some slabs of stone we grabbed at random and polished so you can see the quality when finished. In this photo the stones were photographed dry, the other shots are pictured wet. The large Turquoise nuggets were sliced into sizes ranging from 2" up to 6" long or wide. They average between 8mm and 10mm thick. Some slices may be larger or smaller than the size given. This turquoise has great hardness, but is stabilized to prevent reacting to the environment and preserve the color. You will receive 1 pound of Number 8 Green Turquoise Slices from the group pictured. Each 1 pound lot is different and the number and size of stones will vary.
