Turquoise

As the name suggests, this art involves using turquoise stone, one of the world's most beautiful gemstones. The blue turquoise stone and dark turquoise stone is found in Egypt, Mexico, and Iran, with mesmerising hue to the copper in its makeup. Still, Iran is home to the oldest and biggest turquoise stone mine globally, which is located in Neyshabur, Razavi Khorasan Province, northeast of the country.

Turquoise jewelry and Home Accessories

Although seen on the exterior of some old places of worship in Iran, turquoise is mainly used in jewellery making as:

  • turquoise rings
  • turquoise earrings
  • bracelets, and other items.

Isfahan artists use the gemstone on copper surfaces, creating beautiful handicrafts called “turquoise inlays.” Cyruscrafts is proud to bring you turquoise inlay products decorated with genuine Neyshabur turquoise.

Steps of turquoise inlay in Decorative Dishes

Here, we’ll take a look at the steps taken in making a work of turquoise inlay:

1. Preparing the copper base: After a turquoise inlayer design a product, the procedure goes to a coppersmith to make the base. The copper object is then given ridges and grooves along its surface using bending machines.

2. Gluing turquoise pieces: The turquoise inlayer meticulously glues tiny pieces of turquoise on the base.

3. Polishing and finishing: In this step, the product is polished using a diamond blade. Then, it’s finished by sanding and coated in a layer of polyester powder to make the copper washable. The final product will be a copper object covered partially with a mosaic of turquoise pieces.

Authentic turquoise stone vs fake one

How to distinguish authentic art has always been an issue for art enthusiasts. Here at Cyruscrafts, we have identified six ways to tell genuine from fake turquoise inlay. Here’s how to do it:

1.Scratch the turquoise with a needle:If the stone is scratched, then it’s no doubt made of plastic. Fine turquoise can never be scratched.

2.Check attention to detail: The more meticulous the inlaying, the more valuable the piece. Also, the more turquoise pieces are used and the more organized they are inlaid, the higher is the product quality and value.

3. Compare turquoise and glass hardness:Turquoise is harder than glass, so it can scratch it. Use a piece of turquoise to scratch glass. If the glass doesn’t get scratched or the stone does, then the stone isn’t original turquoise.

4. Use polyester:Rub some polyester on the turquoise. If the stone is scratched, then it’s not turquoise.

5. Expose to sunlight:Expose the turquoise to direct sunlight for a few minutes. If the color doesn’t change, it’s probably original turquoise, as fake turquoise changes in color when exposed to sunlight.

6. Expose to fire:Hold the turquoise close to a fire. If the stone changes in color, it’s not genuine because the fire can’t change the color of true turquoise.
