Hidden Valley Cabochon

Hidden Valley is a rare turquoise that came to market in 1976. Only 600 lbs was found and all of it sold by Wayne Nelson. The story may be found in Turquoise in America Part Three.


This cabochon weighs 11.2 carats and measures 2cm by 1.5cm. It is priced at $25 a carat or $280. I have assigned a TG of 85 or HG High Grade. It shows a brilliant blue characteristic of Hidden Valley over a brown/gray matrix resembling the matrix often found in Candelaria. Hidden Valley is seldom found in the market place especially at this grade. It comes from the Wayne Nelson Collection.
