Bisbee Blue Turquoise Cabochons
This beautiful lot of Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons
was hand cut by John and Dillon Hartman of Durango Silver Company. This lot
weighs 100 carats and is a great example of lighter blue Bisbee Turquoise
cabochons that would be an excellent addition to your Turquoise collection.
There are many variations of Bisbee Turquoise in color range, matrix type and
configuration and the Turquoise Properties of these particular pieces of Bisbee
Turquoise are almost clear blue and these cabochons exhibit just enough of the
chocolate brown matrix to show they are Bisbee Turquoise from Bisbee, Arizona
USA. These Bisbee Turquoise cabochons are medium blue in color with
chocolate colored matrix in a chunky pattern. Most people think of deep blue
Turquoise when they think of Bisbee Turquoise, but the Bisbee Turquoise mine
produced many looks of Turquoise including this medium to light blue color.
This is a beautiful set of Bisbee Turquoise cabochons and is certainly one to
be proud of.
Collectibility of Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons
If you are a Turquoise enthusiast you probably have more than
one piece of Turquoise Jewelry and you also have probably fallen
in love with this wonderful gemstone. It is no wonder as Turquoise was one of
the very first gemstones founded by mankind over 7,500 years ago. Ancient people
believed that Turquoise was put on earth by the great ones above. Turquoise
has had an important history on this earth and Durango Silver Company has a
lot of information about that which you can find in our Turquoise
Learning Center. Many cultures believe that Turquoise has important spiritual
as well as metaphysical powers and there is no Turquoise on earth that
has as many metaphysical minerals that grew in the ground with this Turquoise.
Bisbee Turquoise is one of the most beautiful
types of Turquoise on earth and American Turquoise Collectors
feel Bisbee Turquoise is the best Turquoise that ever came out
of the ground in the world. They stopped mining Bisbee Turquoise around
1976 so it is now pretty hard to come by, however, you can own a Bisbee Turquoise
Cabochon or a piece of Silver Jewelry with a Bisbee
Turquoise Cabochon. Durango Silver Company has outstanding quality Bisbee
Turquoise Cabochons as well as Bisbee Turquoise Jewelry available in our
online store as well as in our Trading Post located in Durango, Colorado USA.
Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons From Durango Silver Company
Durango Silver Company has been collecting, cutting and using
Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons in their Silver Jewelry for over
40 years. In 2001, Durango Silver Company had the great fortune of purchasing
the balance of the Cecil Mickelson Bisbee Turquoise collection from his
descendants, which, was one of the largest remaining collections of Bisbee Turquoise
in existence. We have been in a continuous hunt for additional Bisbee Turquoise
since and have landed several smaller collections throughout the years. Most
recently, we have acquired another major Bisbee Turquoise collection from an
old miners stash of over 30 years of mining at the Bisbee Turquoise mine. This
collection came directly from the descendants of the Turquoise miner and is
100% authentic and natural Bisbee Turquoise.
We have been sorting and preparing a large new parcel of Bisbee
Turquoise to be cut into a premier selection of Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons
which will be marketed in late 2011 and throughout 2012. Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons
are very rare and are not usually available, this is a rare occasion that you
may what to be on top of as these Bisbee Turquoise cabochons become available
from our company.
