Turquoise Nugget from a Rare Locality
Persia
This beautiful nugget of natural turquoise displays some botryoidal growth as well as a small area of associated brown matrix on the outside. Yet, a small cleaved "window" on one corner, most likely performed by the miner himself, reveals the vivid blue gem quality of the interior.
Weighing approximately 253 grams and measuring 3 3/8 x 2 3/4 x 2 1/2 in
