Cutting Turquoise

August 2014 Turquoise wThis piece of turquoise is almost finished.  I’ve got one last “wheel” before I polish it.  This week has kept me a bit busy but I’m hoping to finish this sweet stone in the next couple of days.  It’s got both greens and blues with little bits of brownish matrix.  I seriously love cutting turquoise.  At this point in the process I still haven’t decided if this will be a ring or a necklace.  There’s still time for that.  I’ll have to check my records to see if I was given the mine where this came from.  All I can say right now is it’s from the US.
