Original Message:   Thank you Thomas! Does Danny have some spare time ...
Thank you Thomas, this is a really cool detailed map. I've seen similar ones in 'Turquoise, the gem of the centuries' by Oscar T. Branson and in the New Mexico Magazine 'The allure of Turquoise', but yours is more detailed with more sample stones and better photographed.

The link looks familiar, but I had not saved it, so thank your for that!

I have been browsing through the BCN archives and read almost every thread about turquoise and indeed came across Danny's messages quite frequently as well as from others.(there is one picture of Danny on top of a turquoise pile somewhere in China -I think-, which I won't easily forget! Nor the pictures of Russ I think with a storage full of different turquoise coloured resin, a real wake-up call) I have learned a lot, and became less naive about the turquoise and all its fakes, copies etc one can buy on the net but I still could not find a set of guidelines that helps to distinguish waxed from dyed from stabilized turquoise . And maybe that is hard to describe , but there must be some clues?

So Danny,and other turquoise specialists,if you have some spare time we could start a new thread on this subject??? Thank you!
