Turquoise Specimens

Turquoise is a copper oxide, often occurring in or near copper deposits. The color depends upon the amounts of copper and iron, which will determine whether it is a more blue or green color. Many of the turquoises specimens listed below come from locations here in the United States, making them rare, as many mines throughout the US have been closed down for quite some time. Please see individual item descriptions for origin and characteristics.
