Natural Turquoise Cabochons
7/8" x 7/8"

Candelaria turquoise was mined in a mean and primitive area of the Candelaria Hills near Tonopah, Nevada.  Much of the turquoise from the Candelaria mine was of a deep electric blue but, occasionally, a lovely green stone was brought to light.   This particular stone is just such a specimen.  It is super hard, which is the reason for the high shine and superior polish.  For having been extracted from one of the most inhospitable places in the USA this stone is highly refined.

Candaleria Turquoise

From the flanks of Mt. Diablo comes a rare an unusual find. Candaleria, Nevada was once a boomtown for silver, gold and then copper. Now it is a scrapped out ghost town sitting on the edge of a vast hole in the ground. In the 1970's a good deal of high grade, natural turquoise was pulled from that pit; sent to Manassa, Colorado to be cut and polished; then sent around the country to be set in jewelry of all types.
