Boulder Turquoise, also called Ribbon Turquoise, refers to how the stone is cut, not where it comes from. Turquoise forms in veins of various widths within boulders, or "mother rock". Most often these veins are cut out of the surrounding rock to harvest pure turquoise pieces. But when the stone is cut to show the mother rock as the main feature with the original vein or ribbon of turquoise running through it as an accent it is called Boulder Turquoise.
