Authentic, natural, Damele or Damale Turquoise Cabochon
Here is a rare free form teardrop shaped gemstone of authentic, natural Damele Turquoise not Damele Variscite, hand-cut by John Hartman from old stock rough that was mined in the 1960s. This cabochon has been backed with a lightweight resin (does not contain metal) to give it a cushion and to allow for easier bezel setting. We cut every Turquoise cabochon knowing they will be set by a jeweler such as ourselves, there for we try to cut them in a way that will allow for ease of setting. Every cabochon has been diamond cut down to 14,000 grit and then polished with Sapphire powder for the highest gloss shine the stone will allow.
This Damale or Damele Turquoise Cabochon contains: 21.5 cts of yellow American Turquoise from Nevada, USA. This type of Damele or Damale is hard to find. Most of what is called Damele or Damale Turquoise is actually variscite, this cabochon is Turquoise, not variscite.
This natural Nevada Turquoise gemstone measures approx. 7/8 in diameter. The stone you see in the picture is the one you will receive. All Turquoise cabochon sells are final.
