Stabilized Ithaca Peak Turquoise Rough
This Stabilized Ithaca Peak Turquoise Rough is mined just above the Kingman mine in northwestern Arizona. This rock is highly sought after for its beautiful blue coloring with pyrite matrix. A very popular stone for jewelry designers, when you find it....you should buy it! Each lot is a mixture of nuggets/slabs, some as small as 1" to some bigger ones at 4", please see photos for reference. Sold in one pound lots, these Stabilized Ithaca Peak Turquoise Rough won't last long!
Because Turquoise is porous in its natural state, most stones are stabilized. This hardens it & makes the natural color permanent...it's a good thing!
