    This is a natural oval Royston Turquoise Cabochon from Tonopah, Nevada USA. It is a beautiful light green Turquoise and it does have variation in color which is what I like. The golden brown matrix has good webbing and this is a good representation of Royston Turquoise. I weighs 33 carats and measures 18mm x 29mm.
