Yay! Turquoise!!

One of the stones I have lusted after for my Earth Medallions is Turquoise in large cabochons. Turquoise is one of the most valuable non-transparent minerals in the jewelry trade. Known to be prized by early Egyptians, it is among the oldest gemstones used by man.
This prohibitively expensive gemstone has eluded me until now.
My most recent trip to Nawbin in Traverse City made me very happy. Karl had some Kingman turquoise waiting for me and I snatched up 3 gorgeous pieces. Here are two of them...

These turned out so nicely! It won't be easy to part with them -- the jewelry fiend that lives in me wants to keep them all!
I just may have to resort to begging, but I will wrangle more out of Karl if at all possible!
