  • Rare Persian Turquoise Cabochon

    This is a rare Persian Turquoise Cabochon as it is Robbins Egg Blue with red iron matrix, this type of Turquoise has not come out of the ground for the last 50 years. Robbins Egg Blue Turquoise has almost become a myth as it just cannot be found on this side of the world and if you want to go to Iran to get yours, let us know how it turned out! I think if anyone got caught smuggling Turquoise out of Iran, they would be put in front of a firing squad.
    The marvelous piece of Turquoise weighs 43.8 carats and measures 20 mm x 32 mm. It is a dandy!

    Persian Turquoise Red Web Cabochon

    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.
