Item details

CARICO LAKE TURQUOISE CABOCHON

NATURAL LIME GREEN W/ MATRIX GEM QUALITY

NOT BACK OR COLOR TREATED IN ANY WAY

SIZE IS 11 MM x 10.5 MM

WEIGHT 3.5 CARATS - ONLY ONE

IN THE EARLY 1970'S WE WERE ONE OF THE DISTRIBUTORS FOR THE CARICO LAKE MINE. WE ACCUMULATED QUITE A BIT OF THE TURQUOISE/FAUSTITE, BOTH OF THE MINE RUN AND HIGHER GRADES. WHEN THE HUNT BROTHERS RAN STERLING SILVER UP TO $50.00 AN OUNCE WE SOLD OUR STOCK OF METAL AND PUT ASIDE THE REMAINING ROUGH TURQUOISE AND VIRTUALLY FORGOT ABOUT IT. AT THAT TIME THE LIME GREEN CARICO LAKE WAS NOT IN DEMAND LIKE IT IS TODAY. ONLY RECENTLY (JULY 2015) WE HAVE STARTED TO CUT AND POLISH THIS ROUGH MATERIAL THAT WAS MINED OVER 40 YEARS AGO. EVEN THEN THE LIME GREEN WAS RARE AND OUR PRESENT STOCK IS LIMITED. OUR HOPE IS THAT IT WILL GO TO THOSE TALENTED CRAFTSMEN AND WOMEN WHO WILL INCORPORATE IT INTO BEAUTIFUL JEWELRY TO BE ADMIRED AND TREASURED BY FUTURE GENERATIONS.

THIS LISTING HAS A PICTURE OF THE STONE FOR SALE AND ANOTHER CURRENT PICTURE THAT DISPLAYS THE VARIETY OF COLORS PRODUCED BY THE CARICO LAKE MINE AT THAT TIME AND AVAILABLE NOW IN OUR LISTINGS. THERE ARE MANY OTHER VARIETIES OF BLUE AND BLUE WITH MATRIX OF CHERT THAT WE HAVE NOT STARTED CUTTING.
