Golden Hills Turquoise Pendant from Kazakhstan
Kazakhstan Turquoise pendant, made with 925 sterling silver. Also known as Lavender or Golden Hills Turquoise, is only found one place in the world, Kazakhstan. Discovered in 2013, local miners found a small deposit while mining for Dioptase in the Altyn-Tyube mine, which translates to 'Golden Hills'. This rare light periwinkle blue Turquoise is a premium top grade, natural Turquoise. Since it's a stable, naturally hard Turquoise, it doesn't require stabilization treatments as other softer Turquoise varieties need.
Kazakhstan Turquoise is still a fairly recent discovery, making its first debut onto the market at the Tucson Gem Show in 2014. Since its debut, Kazakhstan Turquoise has become highly valuable and sought after. But it remains difficult to obtain, with only a limited supply available, it can only be mined four months of the year, during the harsh freezing winters when the mine is most stable.
