This is a new find! From Pit #2, this is 100% natural with no fracture sealing. This is more ‘minty’ and has finer webbing.
Mining tools and artifacts found near the mine date back over 3000 years. From a central area in Persia. This gemstone is typically crushed for it's iron content much the same way Bisbee turquoise was for copper. It is also blasted and open pit mined by large equipment.
