~ Mohave purple turquoise cab set ~

Offered here is a matching trio of cabochons of Mohave bronzed purple turquoise.It is composed of small chunks of natural blue turquoise (some spiderwebbed), to which they added red dye and a brassy-bronze metallic. From there, I'm told the proprietary process is very much the same as with other stabilized turquoise, and this is the stunning end result. Beautifully rich coloration, with contrasting golden metallic webbing through and through. Even though this purple turquoise isn't natural, either in color or form, I find it to be absolutely gorgeous. It cut like a dream, took a fantastic polish, and is totally solid. And the VIVID colors certainly command attention! The large stone has a rounded dome of 6mm, while the smaller pair are 3mm thick. Each of these three matching stones has a crisp designer shape, and they are polished to a glossy brilliance front and back.

Size: 49x20mm, 18x11mm pair
Weight: approximately 46 carats total
