Hoping for help evaluating the three turquoise’s pictured. Are they American turquoise? Besides individual preference is one considered more valuable than the other and why? I realize rarity and hardness comes into play but if you are unable to identify what should you be looking for.
It looks like the first two stones are American, I would call the third picture Chinese. The first stone appears to be a piece of Kingman and that would be the most valuable of the three. It has a consistent blue color and a nice webbing. The second stone is pretty rough and color is pale. Chinese is nice, collectors seam to desire American stones more.
Jason, thanks so much for the detailed information. I thought the green might be Chinese. I must be starting to get some of this down. I find I’m drawn to Chinese Turquoise more often than not.
