Authentic White Turquoise generally comes from Arizona and Nevada, USA. Although it is called White Turquoise, there is a
slight tint of blue or green color from the minerals in the rock that actually make the material test as White Turquoise. For example, Sacred Buffalo (Dry Creek Turquoise) has a very slight tint of clear blue, Tortoise has a slight tint of green and so on.
The fact is, many Turquoise Mines in the U.S. have light to white material that will test as Turquoise (or to have the elements of Turquoise), however, it is so soft it has the hardness of chaulk, nearly “O” on the Mohs Scale. For this reason, it is not hard enough to cut and polish into cabochons that are suitable for use in quality Jewelry.
