GEM DESIGNER BISBEE
NATURAL TURQUOISE CABOCHON
BISBEE NATURAL TURQUOISE CABOCHON
- VERY RARE
Exquisite extremely rare Bisbee natural turquoise unbacked!
It has some beautiful pyrites in there like stars. The RED spiderwebbing is almost unknown. The Lavender Pit was called that because of the red iron in the rocks. When rain came the iron would run out and mix with other minerals and it would have a lavender tint. This cab is part of the 3% of all turquoise ever mined which is hard enough to cut without stabilizing or backing. It's quite the collector's gem.
You will never see another one of these again.
The Bisbee Lavender pit mine was closed about 30 years ago. I got some of this material in the 1970's. The fine red veiling spiderwebbing is evident in this cabochon.
Investment grade cab.
Very fine kerf for bezel on this beauty.
Dimensions are 32mmX19mmX4mm at 68.75 cts.
Item# - Bub1 $1330.00
