πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€Chinese Turquoise is the most used turquoise in the world, dating back to 1700 BC. Ranging in color from all shades of green, to light blue, to a dark blue with a dark brown or black matrix. China has also produced the highest amount of spiderwebbed turquoise in the world. It was never as popular as Jade but that's now quickly changing. Recently Turquoise has been mined at the Ma'ashan Mine, northwest of Nanjing and Shanghai, and mines in the Hubei Province. The turquoise being produced is very similar to the American mines Royston, Kingman and Morenci. Two of Hubei's better known mines are Yungai(Cloud Mountain) or "a mountain covered in cloud" which has s now closed and Zhuxi or "a mountain where growing plenty of bamboo". The price of material from China is expected to increase a considerable amount as turquoise becomes more rare throughout the worldπŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€
