Sliced Number 8 Turquoise Black Matrix One Pound Lot
This is a rare treat. These genuine Number 8 Turquoise Slices contain the black mother stone that is seldom seen these days, especially with these characteristics. The black spiderwebbing matrix blends with the sky blues in unique ways and will make cabochons unlike any other. In some stones, the black matrix appears smokey, in others it swirls with the Turquoise or spiderwebs across. This large Turquoise rough has been sliced and grouped based on the color and characteristics. The sizes vary from large to medium, about 2" up to 4-1/2" wide. Each lot will contain some larger and some smaller pieces. The slabs are cut to about 8mm to 10mm thick on average, but some end pieces and other chunks might be a little thicker, depending on the shape of the rock from which they were cut. 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. This turquoise was photographed dry. This turquoise has great hardness, but is stabilized to prevent reacting to the environment and preserve the color. You will receive 1 pound of Sliced Number 8 Turquoise Rough from the group pictured. Each 1 pound lot is different and the number and size of stones will vary.
