Lime Green Turquoise

Turquoise is a sedimentary gemstone which means minerals in the upper layers of the earth contain certain minerals and when water/rain flows through the earth the runoff funnels into voids below to deposit a conglomerate which ultimately creates Turquoise. Turquoise consists of copper, iron and alluminum sulfites and a lack of copper is the reason why Lime Green Turquose is created. A Turquoise deposit can be blue at its core location in the earth and the further you dig from the core the color of the gemstone may/can change colors due to smaller amounts of one or more minerals which were not present in the earth above at the time when the Turquoise was being formed millions of years ago.See photos and information on Lime Green Turquoise in our article located on our website.
