Emerald Valley Turquoise
The brilliant green turquoise known as Emerald Valley is found in two locations.
One source is in Nevada and the other in China. While I don't know for certain
which mine produces the stone, I do know that the stones are processed into
cabochons in the US.
Emerald Valley is a good medium to high grade turquoise and is not common in
the US. The color is typically a variety of green with some brown matrix.
