    This is a very nice Egyptian Turquoise Gemstone with a beautiful light blue color and red iron spiderweb matrix. This stone has been stabilized for hardness which is good in this case - it will never change color and it is hard so it will not easily crack or break which would have been a possibility had it not been hardened. This stone weighs 19.5 carats and measures 18mm x 24mm which is large. This stone would make a beautiful pendant or bracelet.
