No idea on mine. Just wanted to say it is a really pretty stone with the blue and green together. :blush:

I have some Turquoise jewelry which also has the green and blue colors.
Natural (unstabilized) Turquoise can change colors due to body oils and other things.
A piece of Turquoise can vary in hardness. The softer areas can turn a greenish color, while the harder areas remain light blue.

The pattern of your matrix makes me think of Carico Lake turquoise. Carico Lake is noted for its greens but some blue does come from the area. Here is a photo of some Carico Lake with a similar pattern. I’m sure there there are other mines with similar too. Hope this helps, Kyle

Thank you Kyle. It helps a lot… The woman I purchased this from aquired it in the late 70’s, she told me. (would explain @fernwood’s comment above, perhaps) Stone looks natural to me…I truly appreciate the input!

The ring definitely has some age. Could possibly be a piece of Blue Gem Turquoise. Enjoy it.
