High Quality Turquois - Gem TurquoiseGem Turquoise is actually very rare as about 5% of all Turquoise ever found was high grade or gem quality Turquoise. Gem Grade Turquoise is Turquoise that has matured to the hardness of a 5 on the Mohs scale of gemstone hardness. At this state of hardness the stone has become almost agatized and has become very stable and is easy to polish to a brilliant, glass like finish.

Durango Silver Company has written a very nice article on Gem  Turquoise and invite you to visit the page.

We also have included a lot of photos of Gem Turquoise Jewelry for you to see what Gem Turquoise looks like in Southwestern Turquoise Jewelry.

Turquoise Qualities

There are many different things to consider when trying to determine Turquoise Qualities.  As far as natural Turquoise, there is color, character, locality which the stone came from, matrix patterning,  hardness, and luster.  In today’s market Turquoise qualities are also based on whether they are natural or have been treated.
