This is a beautiful medium blue, natural Bisbee Turquoise Cabochon Set that was cut out of a big chunk of Quartz, it has a good amount of quartz, chocolate brown and golden brown matrix. They were hand cut by Dillon Hartman from the Durango Silver Co Bisbee Turquoise collection. These are authentic Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons that match in color and character and have gorgeous true blue coloration laced with chocolate brown matrix and heavy quartz. My guess why you never see Bisbee in quartz is that in that period manufacturers did not want quartz in Turquoise, today we collect rarities and they can bring a giant premium and this is a case and fact – these stones are very rare! They measure 12mm x 27mm, 11.5mm x 28.5mm, 16mm x 26mm, 22mm x 35mm, 28mm x 32mm and 23mm x 42mm, they weigh a total of 202 carats. This set of matching stones are priced at $15.00 per carat. We have a couple of large Bisbee Rocks of Quartz with Turquoise running through them as specimens in our collection that we would be happy to give you good photos of if you purchase these cabochons.
Bisbee Turquoise is one of the most beautiful types of Turquoise that has ever been taken out of the ground in North America. Its striking true blue color ranges are spectacular and the chocolate matrix that the Turquoise is found in extenuates its beauty. Many Turquoise collectors worldwide believe Bisbee Turquoise is some of the finest Turquoise in the world! There is no Turquoise on earth that is comparable to Bisbee Turquoise, as it has its own unusual characteristics that are unique only to itself. Just to let you know, there have been several piles of Bisbee Turquoise Chalk stabilized lately and this is not natural Turquoise. There is nothing wrong with stabilized Turquoise if that is what you buy, however, in our opinion it is not worth near as much as natural Turquoise. The colors are not the same in enhanced Turquoise and they are artificially abnormal. We sell authentic, natural Bisbee Turquoise and unless otherwise noted – all of our Turquoise Cabochons are natural! If you are looking for a very rare set of Bisbee Turquoise Cabochons, here they are!
