"Beautiful turquoise cabochons from the #8 Turquoise Mine, set in smooth bezels."
Cabochon. A cabochon is a gemstone that has been smoothly shaped and polished as opposed to being cut with flat facets. This usually results in a stone with a rounded convex top and flat bottom. Opaque gems, such as turquoise are often cut as cabochons, while transparent stones such as diamonds are facetted.
Number Eight Turquoise Mine is located near Carlin, Nevada. It is know for producing exceptional spiderweb turquoise with the matrix ranging from golden brown to almost black, with a deep golden webbing being most characteristic.
