Location: #8 Turquoise Mine, Nevada

This old number 8 is naturally hard. Some of this material may have a surface absorbent on it. This material is not stabilized. The #8 Turquoise Mine was discovered in 1925 and was first mined in 1929. The production of turquoise from this site stopped in 1976, making the remaining stones limited. This parcel has already been trimmed and tested for fractures. Each stone should be able to cut a cabochon between ring size to pendant size. The material is hard and not prone to breaking even without a treatment or backing.
