A striking blue turquoise stone, highly polished on the top and around the edges. The base which is flat has just been lightly polished.
Exceptionally tactile, this piece could be used to create a unique piece of jewellery.
One of the oldest of all gemstones, turquoise has been mined for thousands of years.
Despite its popularity turquoise is a delicate mineral that can crack or lose colour if not well looked after. It must be protected from moisture, oils from the skin mainly through touch and pollutants in the atmosphere. Perfumes, hairsprays, air fresheners and scented candles all have the potential to cause irreparable damage.
