A rare color for turquoise, Golden Hill Turqouise comes from a deposit in the Altyn Tyube mine in Kazakhstan. These stunning gems have a light blue to lavender hue and a reddish, burnt umber matrix. The Golden Hill mine is known for producing large quantities of dioptase, a gem very similar to turquoise in color and strength, mimicking emerald in its magnificent green color. Dioptase and other gems are much more common in the Golden Hills mine, and in Kazakhstan itself, than turquoise. Golden Hill turquoise is one of the most chemically pure turquoises to be found in the world, and its color and consistency are also one of the most vibrant and durable!
