Bisbee Blue Turquoise is one of the most beautiful types of Turquoise that has ever been taken out of the ground in North America. It's striking true blue color ranges are spectacular and the chocolate matrix that the Turquoise is found in, extenuates it's beauty. Bisbee Turquoise is some of the finest Arizona Turquoise and there is no Turquoise on earth that is comparable to Bisbee Turquoise, as it has it's own unusual characteristics that are unique only to itself. In the late 1950's, a deposit of Turquoise was found in the Lavendar Pit region of the Bisbee Mine.By the early 1960's, Bisbee Turquoise had become the finest Turquoise the market had ever seen and demand for it went through the roof. There is very little Bisbee Turquoise available today and due to it's rarity and exceptional beauty it is very valuable.
