Paula says - "The term Ribbon Turquoise refers not where the stone was mined but to the appearance of the stone - a band of turquoise surrounded by areas of mother rock."

Ribbon Turquoise, also called Boulder 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 Ribbon or Boulder Turquoise.
