Burtis Blue Turquoise 14 carat Cabochon 005 from Cripple Creek, Colorado Jewelry Making Supplies Closeout Final Sale. The Burtis Blue Turquoise (formerly operated as Florence Mine) has been mined since 1938. The mine produces a variety of color from blues to greens and the cabochons we offer are all natural. Burtis Blue Turquoise has a mohs hardness of 7-8 therefore stabilization processing is not necessary making it desirable for various applications including stone setting and wire wrapping.
This cab measures approximately 23mm overall length (at longest point) and tapers from 9mm to 20mm (at bottom) with an overall widest point of 21mm. Cabochon is approximately 14 carats with smooth high polish and a scattering of black (from the Diamond mining in this area). I say 'approximately' because my scale is small and likely not well calibrated. There were slight variances in my weight and the cutter's weight - some weighed the same, some slightly less and some slightly more; so I provide you the cutters weight which was marked on each cab. This cab is backed.
