Narrow Oval Green Pilot Mountain Turquoise Cab
The Pilot Mountain Range set North-East of Tonopah, Nevada and it produces some of the most dynamic Turquoise in the world. The formation is in a hard golden Riolite and/or dark brown Manganite type material. Evolution of the earth produced fine cracks where high concentrates of copper, aluminum sulfites and iron conglomerates formed this amazing gemstone. This has never been a highly mined area as the minors have to work hard to harvest the fine Turquoise that wanders through these mountains. You will not see a lot of high-grade Pilot Mountain Turquoise and when you do, you will say, “what the hell kind of Turquoise is this!” It is remarkable and some of America’s finest!!!
