Turquoise Rough from Nacozari
This rough from the Nacozari Mine has not been treated in any way. Turquoise
has not been produced at the Nacozari Mine for a decade. Years ago, when the
mine was producing, we gleaned the very best natural rough from tons of material.
We further high-graded that fine Nacozari material and held back the best
to sell at a later date. That day has arrived and we are now offering this
very rare, superior quality rough for sale!
The best Nacozari turquoise has a fine blue color and is now very hard
to find, even in stabilized material. We even have natural spiderweb material
and material with small pyrite crystals listed below!
Turquoise is a copper-based mineral (hydrated copper aluminum phosphate).
Turquoise polishes well with diamond, tin oxide or green rouge.
