Mined in China near Nanjing & Shanghai, Ma’anshan is a hard, beautiful turquoise. It ranges in color from blue to green, and looks a lot like Morenci Turquoise from Arizona.
Abalone shell has been used by Native Americans since ancient times. Early Zuni jewelry will feature abalone in delicate inlay work, and it is thought to be one of the first materials used in inlay work in the Southwestern USA. Each piece of abalolone in jewelry is unique. Harvested off the coasts of Mexico and the USA, abalone can be used in unusual and organic shapes or cut into cabochons.
