A special stone available this year is Kazakhstan Turquoise, or Golden Hills Turquoise. An rare color for turquoise, Golden Hills Turqouise comes from a deposit in the Altyn Tyube mine in Kazakhstan. These stunning gems have a light blue hue to them, and a reddish, burnt umber matrix. The Golden Hills 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. The turquoise deposit was found most recently 2013 and was most notably featured at the Tucson Gem and Jewelry show in January of 2014.
