Turquoise - Seafoam green Nevada Royston* Barrel - 12x15mm
*Comprised of several mines, this area was one of the largest 3 producers of Turquoise in Nevada, Originally mined by Native Americans this Turquoise is known for it's hardiness and elaborate color. Many pieces have both green and blue in them, overall the colors range from extreme blue to green with beautiful brown matrix. Considered gem quality by many collectors newer pieces are extremely expensive due to the limited production these days. These pieces are older, with no treatment, and gorgeous pale seafoam green - 15-17mm
Turquoise - Chinese** flattened freeform oval in grassy green with umber matrix - 17mm and thick faceted nugget in deep leaf green with cognac brown matrix -10x20mm
**Many will say that Chinese Turquoise has colors to rival even the best of American mine specimens. The key is to know and trust your supplier when buying Chinese Turquoise to ensure you get the quality goods. I have worked with my supplier for Chinese Turquoise for over a decade now and am very picky, as is he :)! Some of my favorite Turquoise is from China, these pieces are from the Hubei Mine and very different from each other but beautifully complementary.

Prasiolite - Pale green Amethyst (heat treated of course to result in this barely there green) is velvety smooth and almost glass like in it's appearance but it is a semi precious stone :) - 10x16mm
