Pendant, Sterling Large Cross with Matrix Blue Turquoise on Lobster Claw
Embody the Spirit of the Southwest in Genuine Turquoise Jewelry.
The mine where a piece of turquoise was found—not its color, nor its matrix, which refers to the veins and patterns of the stone—is the primary factor in determining its value. Historically speaking, the finest turquoise came from the mountains of Asia. In the 20th century, however, the copper-rich American Southwest supplanted them as the primary source of rare, and valuable, specimens, including collector favorites such as Bisbee, Lander Blue, and Number 8 (Black Web).
This turquoise is from Hubei Mine by the Tibetan border. It. has a beautiful luster, featuring the Pyrite Matrix.
