Heya Zurn!  I don't have much info for you, other than to be aware of fakes, because they seem more prevalent than aphids on roses.
I created a new board for this type of discussion, so I moved your topic there.  Enjoy.  :)

If you have a chance to go to Tonapah Nevada they have a fee dig at the royston turquoise mines that you would enjoy

I heard the Royston fee dig was not open because the Ottesons sold ownership and we're now just mining for the owners and of course running their retail turquoise operstions?
