Chinese Hubei turquoise, mined in the mountains around Zhushan county, is becoming more and more popular in past few years. Partly because of the the booming Chinese economy and more Chinese have recognized and fell in love with the unique precious stone. Another main reason is the mine is dying out slowly due to excessively mining over past decade and the local government has put restrict rule on mining and trading to protect its resource in 2008. The price is raising average 20% every year since then. For many years there was massive mining of turquoise in China. The best is from Hubei Provence in central China. The quality of some Hubei turquoise rivals that of American turquoise, and is less expensive. However, the Chinese government has halted the mining of turquoise in China. If this condition continues, the price of Chinese turquoise, including that from Hubei Provence, will rise as well. There is one thing for sure about good turquoise - the value will only increase as it becomes more rare. Turquoise is one of the official birthstones for the month of December, and is heralded as the stone of communication.
