Turquoise from Nacozari
These flats from Nacozari are polished and ready to be wire wrapped. With
very little effort, they can also be drilled and/or shaped to create pendants,
earrings, or cut into fine cabochons. Turquoise is no longer being produced
at the Nacozari Mine and we consider ourselves very lucky to have been able
to get this fine blue material from an old collection.
Turquoise is a copper-based mineral (hydrated copper aluminum phosphate).
Turquoise polishes well with diamond, tin oxide or green rouge.

stones can be cut from it. All pieces will make fine slabs and carvings
and will cut fabulously large stones!
