A few pieces of my Hubei Turquoise (rough and finish cabs)

Hi Everyone,

I would like to show a few pieces of my Hubei Turquoise. As I mentioned in my introduction post, I’m originally from Hubei and have been collecting Hubei turquoise for almost ten years. Please feel free to common about the pieces shown here.

The second one and the last one are making me crazy. :crazy_face: They are all very beautiful. Thank you for showing us.

If you know which mine(s) these come from, It would be wonderful to learn from you. All beautiful stones : )

Most of them are from Could Temple Mine or at least from the area close to that mine. The Green rough is from Bamboo Mountain Mine. The green tear-drop shape is from YaJiaoShan Mine.

Ya Jiao Shan produced really clean pieces. We sometime describe it as gel-like appearance. Specially from the early days, these mine produced really high quality turquoise. Not so much now. The color range from sky blue to greenish blue. The one I had isn’t the best representation of this mine.
