The color of this nugget of gem quality turquoise is a vivid sky blue, and it has been polished to a brilliant luster. The piece weighs 175 grams. This is spiderweb turquoise, with dark gray to black iron oxide veins dividing the sections of clear turquoise. When these pieces are polished or cross cut, the spider web design emerges. This piece comes from the Sinai peninsula in Egypt, which ancient Egyptians called Ta Mefkat, or "land of turquoise".
