    Does anyone know what type of turquoise this is? The 2nd photo is under flash. I like to think that I am knowledgeable when it comes to Native American rings. I am not just interested in the history of the maker and artistry, but the types of turquoise and different mines that produce them, fascinate me as well. This one has me stumped... The contrasting blue against the border bright green looks almost florescent. I would be grateful to anyone that my know what type turquoise gives off this type of effect.

      I do use those sites as they are a fantastic resource. I still see nothing quite like this. I will research the different variations of Bisbee however. I thank you Celiene for your help!
