The Ma’anshan mine, located near Nanjing & Shanghai, is a lovely turquoise from China. This is Chinese turquoise most like American turquoise from Nevada (Royston) and Arizona (Kingman & Morenci).
Ten years ago I walked into a booth at the Tucson Rock Gem & Mineral show and saw what looked like nice ”blue” Morenci in the rough. It turned out to be Ma’anshan and I bought as many pounds as I could. This rock was mined in the early 70’s.
This turquoise has a beautiful range in color in both blue and green. Several pounds still remain uncut.
