BOLD Southwestern High Grade Bisbee Turquoise Handmade Ring Size 7. Dimension of stone 0.41" x 0.55". I need to sell some of them in order to raise fund to pay gemological evaluations for the rest of them. Bisbee turquoise developed an astonishing reputation as a hard, brilliant blue stone of really high quality. The turquoise mineral comes in many different shades of blue with reddish-brown spider-webbing, wisps or veils throughout the stone, which is referred for its unique "Smoky" matrix pattern.
This unique "Smoky" pattern is only found on the turquoise gem stones that are mined from Bisbee. The minerals that come from different turquoise mines in Arizona are often uniquely different in shape and color.
For an example the turquoise that comes from the southeast part of Arizona has an unusual matrix or black pyrite that often looks like silver when polished. While turquoise mining, the mineral has also been found in many different colors with a beautiful dark green turquoise color being one of them.
