Small Number 8 Turquoise Slices Lapidary Rough One Pound Lot
Depending on the size of the turquoise cabochons you want to make, this size may be the most bang for your buck! These Number 8 Turquoise Slices are perfect for making small, one-of-a-kind cabochons or turquoise inlay. The spiderweb patterns and golden caramel mother stone are the savory ingredients that put Number 8 Turquoise on the map. Each stone is it's own composition, a work of art crafted over the millennia. We use No. 8 Turquoise in some of our best jewelry designs, and we can't keep those designs in stock! These lapidary slices of rough Number 8 Turquoise are the smallest size available, but while they might be small in size they are huge in color. These smaller sizes have some of the best color blends and feature a larger variety of mother stone colors and patterns. These slices would also make great specimens in mineral collections. Check out the last photo to see some slices we grabbed at random to polish as example of the quality when finished. In this photo the stones were photographed dry, the other shots are pictured wet. This small size lot consists of a little over 1-1/4" down to 1/2" size and may include some 1/4" pieces and lapidary chips. Check the photos for the quality and size to expect. The slices are between 5mm to 8mm thick, and the vast majority are 7-8mm thick. 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 Turquoise Slices from the group pictured. Each 1 pound lot is different and the number and size of stones will vary.
