Turquoise is a copper aluminium phosphate with a MOH scale hardness of six and therefore softer than quartz. It ranges from sky-blue to grey and green. The blue colouring is due to the presence of copper, while the green is caused by Chromium or Iron. Sometimes the gemstone has small patches that are brown, grey or black. It also sometimes has a 'spiders web' composed of dark veins in grey or black.
This jewellery uses natural turquoise some of which can be identified by the dark spiders web veins. We do not use Howlite that is dyed a turquoise colour and nor do we use synthetic or artificial resins. The turquoise is mined from three separate sources in China, Iran and Nevada.
If the bangle is a cuff bangle (i.e. it is not completely round) it can be expanded/closed by approximate 15% of its diameter dimension shown on its page.
Turquoise has been a popular addition to silver jewellery for hundreds of years. It was particularly popular with the ancient Egyptians, native North American Indians and even the Aztecs.
