Boulder Turquoise Jewelry
High-quality Boulder Turquoise stones are hard to come by and add a unique piece to anyone’s turquoise jewelry collection.
Boulder Turquoise is often called Ribbon Turquoise, and is found in the famous Royston Mines in Nevada. Unlike most other turquoise types that are identified by their mine origins (e.g. Kingman Turquoise comes from the Kingman Mine), Boulder Turquoise is identified by the style of rare and distinctive turquoise veins that run through boulder stones. The reason Boulder Turquoise is sometimes called Ribbon Turquoise is because the turquoise is a “ribbon” that arcs through rich brown boulder stones. The uniqueness of the turquoise patterns that map through beautiful and varied brown boulder stones really gives Boulder Turquoise jewelry its own distinctive flair.
