Turquoise -old, very high quality
6 x 4.7 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
A very rich, dense turquoise weighing 52 grams from a 1960 vintage find. Ex Hitchings collection this has a small surface polished with the rest left in original state. This is a top grade lapidary rough that is a fine example of this material. It is uncommon to see good non-doctored Turquoise as most on the market is either faked, dyed or altered in some way. This is an excellent, real and colorful Mexican piece with a vivid intensity that is very impressive. As an important Copper specie this is under-represented in most collections.
