Rare Australian rough Tuquoise for sale!
After 40 years “in hybernation”, having basically been locked away and forgotten about during all those years, until now.
It was mined by a public company in the early/mid 1970’s and apparently is the only commercial Turquoise mine that has operated in Australia.
The mine was forced to close when approaching an Aboriginal sacred site.
All rough that the company had on hand when it seized mining, was purchased and stored away until it’s recent “discovery”.
But prior to storing the rough, and also since having brought it out of storage, some of it was cut into calibrated cabochons, which is why some off cuts can be found in the lots for sale below; view samples of those cabs: HERE
Please note; although the rough offered below has been sieved into approximate mm sizes, the nature of rough material is such that long and narrow pieces, as well as large, but flat pieces are included and resulting in a fairly mixed lot.
The larger the size, the less likelihood of any rubbish included and most that look like just rock has Turquoise at the back.
