This type of turquoise is often called Persian turquoise, a generic name because it probably did not come from Persia. It is a beautiful blue color turquoise with no matrix at all and in New Mexico, the Cerrillos mines just south of Santa Fe were also found to have a similar type of turquoise. It is interesting to know that turquoise was used by Tiffany at the turn of the last century.
The turquoise used in Victorian jewelry has an interesting history, and if you would enjoy reading more about it, click HERE. The last photo shows other examples of the Victorian turquoise rings, for sale elsewhere on this site.
