The name comes from the French word pierre turquois, which means Turkish stone, because the trade route that brought it to Europe used to come via Turkey.
This Turquoise is from the permanently closed Nacozari Mine in Sonora, Mexico.
Like most Turquoise on the market, these semi precious gemstone nugget cabochons are stabilized or treated before tumbling and polishing.
