About Tibetan Turquoise :-Tibetan Turquoise is a rare luxury that is mined in the Himalayas – ours specifically is from the area around Lhasa in the Himalayan area. Lhasa is known as one of the 4 locations where the finest quality Tibetan Turquoise is sourced, the others being Ngari-Khorsum, Draya and Derge. Turquoise is formed by the percolation of groundwater through aluminous rock in the presence of copper – and the intense underground conditions around the Himalayan Mountain Range have, over many millions of years, given us a beautiful colour of this gem. It tends to be blue-green in colour and is sought after for this fact as most Turquoise found elsewhere leans more towards the blues. For thousands of years, Tibetan Turquoise has been prized and coveted by Tibetan and Nepalese people for its alluring beauty and spiritual values. Each piece displays a striking colour and unique pattern, caused by the matrix showing through on the finished pieces.
