One of the hottest new Turquoise varieties on the market in 2019/2020 is called Sonoran Gold. This beautiful turquoise comes in an aqua blue, lime green, and a two tone blue and green. It features beautiful golden to brown matrix. This material produces some of the most beautiful gemstones you will ever see. The high grade is a beautiful two tone which fades from baby blue to lime green and features yellow spiderweb matrix. The Turquoise is soft and most of it is stabilized or treated with the Zachary process. Once treated it is extremely durable and gorgeous.
This Turquoise is mined in Mexico near the city of Cananea. This material is relatively new to the industry and is a newer deposit in the Cananea mines.
