What Is Turquoise?
There are several different types of turquoise. The natural material is made from a mixture of copper or iron and aluminum, and the green color is developed from that copper. The level of green will depend very much upon the amount of copper present, so for example, blue turquoise develops from high levels of copper without iron, and can be either very light blue or very deep blue colors. A greener turquoise will develop when there is a mixture of copper and iron in the stone. The depth of color can range from very bright greens, or tree greens to deep ocean greens.
Turning Authentic Turquoise into Jewelry
Unlike the majority of stones which are used in jewelry making, turquoise does not become transparent when it is sliced. This means that stones cannot typically be faced, as there is nothing to see beneath the cuts. In most cases, turquoise is cut into beads or flat stones known as cabochon. These can then be placed into jewelry in a variety of forms, ranging from flower shapes and decorative pieces to heart-shaped, ovals and simple round stones. We can show you a range of different colored stones suitable for use in authentic turquoise jewelry.
