28 ct. Blue Gem Turquoise Cabochon
1" x 1 1/4"
This beautifully cut piece of high-grade natural Blue Gem turquoise was fashioned from rough material in the early 1970s. The DePriest family, from the Manassa valley in southern Colorado, worked with the best material from many of the finest American turquoise mines. This cabochon came from Mr. DePriest’s private collection in 2005. The Blue Gem mine has been closed since the late 1970s, so there is not much of this quality turquoise available.
