– China has been a minor source of turquoise for more than 3,000 years and even today turquoise is being mined there. These deposits found have been found in Anhui, Maanshan, Sichuan, Yunxian, Zhushan and Hubei province. Currently producing mines include the Anhui turquoise mine has just recently been opened and produces natural high blues. Located in a remote area of northwest of East China, along Yangtze River Basin, the material is difficult to obtain being deep under the ground, 100 meters, in which the miners have to drill deep holes to obtain the material and hand carry it out of the region.
