Turquoise rings come in every imaginable shade of blue or blue-green, many shades or patterns coming from a specific mine. Turquoise develops over thousands of years, and unlike most other stones, some turquoise are cut to include the matrix (the stone that turquoise forms upon), especially if it shows a characteristic pattern, like a spiderweb. Turquoise also often features inclusions, tiny pieces of other stones, including pyrite, gold, or silver. These characteristics make every turquoise ring for women or men unique.
