Turquoise is one of the loudest inlay materials we sell. It's incredibly vivid color and complete opaqueness make this ring stand out very easily even in small quantities.
Turquoise is relatively soft with a Mohs hardness of 5-6, making it a very forgiving material that is easy to crush, inlay, sand, polish, and work with in general. This material is perfect for ring makers of all skill levels.
I was a little disappointed that the stone contained some dark fragments besides the expected turquoise color. I do understand creating a pure product is not always a perfect process, so I'll take it as a learning experience. That said, I have purchased many PA products and have been very happy with them.
I had originally ordered turquoise from Amazon thinking I would get good quality. Boy was I wrong. When I received it I realized how fake the turquoise was, and I was desperate to find something authentic for a ring I was not able to finish.
Long story short, I found this item and it was amazing! It was the original reason for my buying so much from "Patrick Adair Supplies". You saved me and I owe you!
I think they could be in better sizes, lots of peices are bigger then 4mm sizes and some are very small, will have to break them down myself
Thank you for the review, Prince! Glad you were satisfied with the turquoise! ~Sarah
