This fabulous Sonoran Turquoise stone pops! Amazingly beautiful.
It has really bright lighter blue blending to dark
emerald greens with a bit of yellow and silver pyrites, a mineral
sometime found in turquoise.
The hand display is not to scale, it's smaller.
It's marked 925 and signed.
The stone is 1 3/26" by just over 1/2".
It's 1 3/8" tall by 3/4" at it's widest point.
weight: 14.1 grams on my scale
I placed a quarter there for scale.
Sonoran Gold Turquoise is mined in Sonora, Mexico near the city of Cananea. The mine is located at the Campitos Mountain. Sonoran Gold is a beautiful turquoise comes in an aqua blue, lime green, two tone blue and can have stunning yellow gold matrices. Unlike most turquoise, Sonoran Gold is not mined in veins but forms inside clay deposits as individual nuggets.
