*At Nevada Cassidys the creation of a cabochon is an artform. We take care and "peace of mind" when designing any of our natural turquoise cabochons, turquoise freeforms, and most of all the turquoise cabochon suites.
All the turquoise cabochons we sell are natural and untreated. Our turquoise cabochons are unbacked and the stones are hand selected for cabochon making. We focus on the natural shape and pattern of each stone and do not force any stones into a shape. We use turquoise vein material, turquoise nuggets and some of the stones are cut with a rockk saw and have a natural hostrock backing. The turquoise found at Stone Mountain mine is high quality Nevada turquoise with a high vareity of color hues and matrix patterns. Most of the matrix found within these stones will take a polish. The turquoise produced with it's large gradient of color and pattern combination makes for an endless adventure for the lapidary and jewelry artist.
Cabochon = "A cabochon , from the Middle French caboche (head), is a gemstone which has been shaped and polished as opposed to faceted The resulting form is usually a convex top with a flat bottom." - wikipedia
