  • Persian Spider-webbed Turquoise Gemstone -Robbins Egg Blue

    This is a beautiful high dome Persian Turquoise Gemstone that is of the famed Robbin Eggs Blue Coloration and Red Spiderweb Matrix! This is a very hard stone to find, Robbins Egg Blue has not been mine for many decades and all Turquoise is kept in Iran as there is a big market for Turquoise in their own country. The only way to get it out is to smuggle it through Turkey and the could mean death if caught! This stone weighs 20.3 carats and measures 15mm x 22mm. It is a high dome measuring 8.5 mm high and would make an outstanding piece of Turquoise Jewelry.

    Persian Turquoise Gemstone -Robbins Egg Blue with Red Spiderweb

    To find true "Robbins Egg Blue" Spiderweb Turquoise is like finding a needle in a haystack, I have had this Turquoise for over 40 years. I bought this Turquoise in the rough in 1969 and got one kilo in trade on a bad debt, I believe this cost me $4,000. back then. I cut these stones in the 1970's and made one Bracelet and then put them back, I though until more Persian would come into the United States - it never came! John Hartman.
