Yungaisi Mine Turquoise, this material was mined in China, Hubei Province is part of what is now considered the Cloud Mountain turquoise mine. Yungaisi is considered 1 of the 3 Cloud Mountain turquoise Mines this is similar to the Royston claims where 10-15 mines all carry the same name and are mined in the same location and hill. I chose to call this by the Mine name “Yungaisi” but you would be correct if you wished to call it Cloud Mountain (google and it will come up as cloud mountain). China is the top producer of turquoise worldwide they are known for having a variety of colors and patterns. My rough comes direct to me from China and a respected representative of the company that owns the Mining rights. The Son and I do all the cutting work we never farm it out. We are Native American gem cutters, we are registered members of the federally recognized Native American tribe Wichita Indians out of Oklahoma.
