This is a very unusual Bisbee Turquoise Cabochon as it is 17.5mm x 64.5mm and it is Bisbee Ribbon Turquoise, which is very scarce and unusual to what anyone has seen from the Bisbee Mine in the past. The Turquoise is a medium and has a couple of miner inclusions that are natural from the drying process when it was taken out of the ground over 50 years ago. The matrix is chocolate brown to a milky white color. This is a very attractive specimen for a avid Bisbee Turquoise Collector! It was hand cut by John Hartman of Durango Silver Company and is 100% natural.
This stone weighs 85 carats. It is bargain priced at $8.00 per carat.
