India/Pakistani green turquoise?

0 votes

I acquired jewelry purchased by the dealer on the border between Pakistan and India. I am guessing the origin is Iran or Afghanistan. The stones have a remarkable color. They do not appear to be fakes or to have been treated or enhanced. They were represented to be very old, very rare, and very valuable. I would appreciate any thoughts on age, rarity, or value. Thanks! alt text alt text alt text alt text

The bright green is Mojave Turquoise I believe. I too have a piece of it and it is indeed quite a beautiful stone.
