This is 100% Natural Egyptian Turquoise.
For over 3,000 Years the Ancient Egyptians have been mining turquoise from the Sinai region of Egypt. This is OLD STOCK Material mined during 1906-1918. It has been in our families collection since the 1950's. Each Cabochon has a *THICK* Host rock "back" which features the red/brown mountain rock of the MT SINAI region. We only have a FEW left, and have greatly reduced the price due to the amount of host rock attached to each specimen. This material is NOT the same "Egyptian Turquoise" that has been appearing in Native American jewelry for the last 3 years. This is RARE, thick and heavy with INTENSE blues and deep red matrix. The natural DEEP BLUE colors and rich red matrix rival even the most beautiful BISBEE Turquoise Specimens!
History- Sinai was called Mafkat ("Country of Turquoise") by the ancient Egyptians. From the time of the First Dynasty, the Egyptians mined turquoise in Sinai at two locations, now called by their Egyptian Arabic names Wadi Magharah and Serabit El Khadim. The mines were worked intermittently and on a seasonal basis for thousands of years. Locals still sell little bits of turquoise, but are VERY secretive about the location of their small dig mines.
