I ordered a lot of these gorgeous Kingman turquoise cabochons without paying attention to their size. Oops. They are mostly too small for what I work on, but I've made them available here for you in much smaller lots.
They are natural Kingman turquoise measuring 3mm x 5mm. They are calibrated.
The Kingman Mine is one of the oldest and highest producing turquoise mines in America. It was originally mined over 1000 years ago. Kingman turquoise is known for its beautiful sky blue color and also produces green turquoise. Kingman mine has been the biggest supplier of turquoise to the southwestern turquoise jewelry industry for nearly as long as it has existed. In fact, the Kingman Turquoise mine was once part of a Turquoise boom around 1000 AD when the Mayan culture was using a lot of turquoise for self adornments and ceremonial items. Today, as in the old times, blue Turquoise from Kingman, Arizona is king, even though the mine produces all colors of turquoise.
