Welcome, Turquoise Hounds! We want to introduce a fabulous webby and colorful Chinese turquoise: Hubei.
The northwestern portion of Hubei Province in China provides a variety of green and blue turquoise. The deposits were discovered while looking for iron ore. This region yields the richest iron deposits, providing the green turquoise with its color. Blue turquoise is found within the same region, and in appearance it is often compared to turquoise from the renowned Nevada mines. Some of it is on par with the coveted robin’s egg blue Persian turquoise.
