Sonora Gold Turquoise is a recent discovery (2019) and comes from the mines near Cananea, Mexico. This turquoise does not come in veins but rather individual nuggets in a clay deposit. The colors can be spectacular, bright in tones of deep green, lime and blue/green mixed, only recently has material been found that is all blue. This turquoise sometimes has golden brown matrix but can also have lighter yellow or white matrixing where the host rock peeks through the turquoise. The color combinations and shades can vary. Because of these rich color variations this new Sonora Gold turquoise is distinctive and has a lot of character.
