Carico Lake turquoise is named after the location of its mines on a dried up lake bed in a high, cool area of Lander County, Nevada. Its clear, iridescent, spring green color is due to its zinc content and is highly unique and collectible. Carico Lake turquoise is also found in a dark blue-green color with a black or brown, spider web matrix. The less common lime green turquoise which is suspect to actually be predominately faustite, is very valuable due to it scarcity and demand. It is hard material. This mine is also known to produce rare psuedomorph clams that are filled with turquoise.
This Gem High-Grade Carico Lake Natural Turquoise Cabochon has mostly a natural chert back with some end backing and weighs 17.8 Ct.
Measures approximately 23.6 mm, by 15.5 mm, by 6.1 mm

I use extreme measures to accurately photograph the cabochons and Jewelry I sell. I have tried my best to capture the cabochon's true colors. Unfortunately digital photography has its limitations when it comes to hues in the blue and green spectrums.
There are also color variations between computer monitors and devices.
In most cases the cabochons I sell will look better in person.
