This turquoise is from a very old stash.It weighs 28.1 g. I polished one end to see the true color.I think it is bisbee or kingman.. Opinions please..
That's definitely a nice color. Is there any reason you are specifically limiting it to Bisbee or Kingman and excluding any other locality possibilities?
a jeweller at the lapidary in Yuma Az i go to said it is bisbee,although I sent a photo to Durangosilver.com and they said it is likely kingman. So I still don't know for sure. Thanks for your interest.
I guess certain experts can attribute the color to a specific locality, but its difficult to do that unless very trained. If the locality is unknown then it could be from anywhere.
That looks like a fine piece of Bisbee. It's got that specific blue that only Bisbee has. I have some myself and I wish I had some with that much Bisbee blue showing.That particular blue has only been found in Bisbee. I could be mistaking it for Kingman but my money is on the Bisbee. Congraduation!
I am convinced it is kingman
