Damele turquoise comes from a small mine located a short distance northeast of Austin, NV. The mine only produces a very small amount of turquoise and variscite and most material found today comes from older collections and rough mined long ago. Damele is quite rare and pricey due to this.
The angled cut of this stone is very unique and pretty. It measures 16mm by 11mm. Band is half round measuring 3mm wide by 1.5mm thick
