Smoky Bisbee Turquoise
Smoky Bisbee Turquoise is a rare formation in Turquoise and only found in Bisbee Turquoise. Turquoise is a sedimentary gemstone, water from the surface of the earth flows through copper, aluminium sulphites and iron to make a solution that flows downward into voids in the earth, it then agatize's over millions of years. We believe smoky Bisbee Turquoise was formed by the solution flowing into a void in the earth that has either moist mud or fine dust - as the solution flows into the void the smoky matrix is mixed into the Turquoise solution. This is just a theory.
