CARICO LAKE TURQUOISE HAS BEEN MINED FROM PREHISTORIC TIMES TO TODAY. THIS MATERIAL COMES IN ALMOST EVERY SHADE OF BLUE AND GREEN, INCLUDING LIME GREEN, THAT YOU CAN IMAGINE. THE FANTASTIC RANGE OF COLORS AND PATTERNS HAS MADE IT A FAVORITE WITH JEWELRY ARTISTS AND COLLECTORS THE WORLD OVER.

THE MINE IS LOCATED SOUTH OF BATTLE MOUNTAIN, NV.

THE ROUGH WAS PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM THE CURRENT MINE OWNER, ERNIE MONTOYA AND IS ALL NATURAL WITH NO TREATMENTS OR STABILIZATION.

THE CABS HAVE BEEN BACKED, WHICH IS COMMON FOR TURQUOISE. I BELIEVE THE ARTIST USED JB WELD FOR THE BACKING MATERIAL.

A PACKAGE OF 6 CABS. PRETTY BLUES AND GREENS WITH NICELY CONTRASTING MATRIX IN THESE STONES. WILL MAKE SOME PRETTY JEWELRY.

THESE CABS MEASURE FROM APPROXIMATELY 14mm TO 25mm. TOTAL WEIGHT IS 54 CARATS.
