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.
Durango Silver Company uses a large variety of Turquoise as well as many other quality gemstones that complement Turquoise. This Page, Turquoise Values, includes information about the Turquoise that is used in the Jewelry Durango Silver Company produces and deals in.
