Cloud Mountain Turquoise
Cloud Mountain turquoise comes from a mine in the Hubei Province in central China that has been the most prolific mine in Asia. The Mohs hardness ranges from a 4 to 5.5. The qualities of turquoise that come from Hubei range from very soft material, needing to be treated to make it usable, to an attractive green spider web, to a very hard and fine blue with dark veined (spider web) matrix that could be considered some of the world’s finest turquoise.
