Rare Australian Tuquoise for sale!
After 40 years “in hybernation”,
having basically been locked away
and forgotten about during all those years, until now.
It was mined by a public company
in the early/mid 1970’s and apparently
is the only commercial Turquoise mine
that has ever operated in Australia.
The mine was forced to close when approaching an Aboriginal sacred site.
All rough that the company had on hand when it seized mining, was purchased and stored away until it’s recent “discovery”.
But prior to storing the rough,
and also after having been brought out of storage, some of it was cut into
which is why some off cuts can be found in the lots for sale below;
view samples of those cabs: HERE
although the rough offered below
has been sieved into approximate mm sizes, the nature of rough material is such
that long and narrow pieces,
as well as large flat pieces,
are included in each lot.
The larger the size,
the less likelihood of any rubbish included.
Some pieces showing just rock
has Turquoise attached at the back.
