African turquoise is a beautiful but complex stone to identify. While it is marketed as turquoise, it is actually jasper that is mined in Southern Africa. Based on this, its more accurate name is African Jasper, though few call it by its true name. With a lovely green/blue turquoise base, it's easy to see why it is so easily mis-identified. It contains quartz, copper, and iron deposits which give it its pattern and yellow hues.
