We hope you enjoy your Crystal Bisbee Turquoise Gemstone that you have purchased from us. We want you to know you have a rare Bisbee Turquoise gemstone and there will never be another like it as it is a one-of-a-kind stone.
We have saved the Bisbee Rock Specimen for over 25 years before we cut it up. Mining for Turquoise in the Bisbee Mine ended in 1977 and we are one of the very few that still have true Bisbee Turquoise today. The rock weighed almost 4 lbs. and the cabochons sold extremely fast. There was approximately 125 lbs. of Lander Blue that sold from 1973 to 1974 and was being sold at $4.00 per carat. Today, Lander Blue is being sold at about $350.00 per carat. There is no doubt in our minds, Bisbee Turquoise of all qualities will grow in value exponentially in the future and especially specimens such as the one you have purchase from us.
Please take note that we advise you to take extra special care of your Crystal Bisbee Turquoise Stone. We would recommend that you make it into a pendant or put it in your shrine.
We know that turquoise is believed by healers, spiritual leaders, and cultures worldwide to give its bearers happiness, good health, and fortune. May the powers of this fine gemstone be with you!
