Nearly all important deposits of turquoise are located near copper occurrences or in copper deposits in arid desert regions of the world and are mined as a byproduct of copper mining.   Turquoise occurs in beautiful hues of blue, blue-green, green and yellow-greens.   It can be solid colored or spider-webbed with either black or brown webbing or contain what is called matrix rock.
Turquoise is found in several places around the world: The southwestern United States, China, Egypt, Iran and Mexico. It was even mined by the ancient Egyptians and Persians.  In the United States, it is most notably found in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Colorado, and California.
