Gem Grade Candelaria Cabochon

Candelaria comes from Esmeralda County Nevada and has never been a located claim. The only concession was given to Wayne Nelson in 1985. The story of Candelaria may be found in Turquoise in America Part Two 1910-1990.


This cabochon weighs 9.7 carats and measures 2cm by 1.5cm. It is priced at $100 a carat or $970. It has not been treated and is lightly backed. I have assigned a TG of 93 or GG Gem Grade. Red Web Candelaria is considered to be the highest grade and seldom found in the market. I cut this stone from rough I purchased from Bob Brucia.
