Search for Australian Turquoise Exchange on Facebook, Boris has a load from an old stockpile from Amaroo NT.

Not many suppliers around Tinker. And those with some (including from the Australian Turquoise Exchange) are chasing USA type rates of US$1/gram.


It's a nice material, but not amazing and I struggle to see the value ... especially since I bought some for only $14/kg about 6 years back. But the allure is in the name I guess ...


Out of interest, what size and weight of material do you need?


Cheers,
Fullerton
