Item Description

Crystallized turquoise is for some reason a true rarity in nature and occurs only at a very few localities worldwide - and this one in Virginia is the most famous of them. While the crystals individually are sub-millimeter, this piece overall has an incredibly rich and pristine coverage area that is loaded with them. This is an old and unusually larger specimen that turned up in Tucson out of an old collection.
