From "Perry Null Trading Co"; Figuring a value is always a little tricky when it comes to rough turquoise. This ( the rock pictured on his site ... not here) rock weighs 1.28lbs that converts to an average yield of around 1280 carats, lots of Bisbee. Bisbee of this grade you find on the market ranging from $20 to $40 a carat, well lets say at our price ($29,830) it will be a great return on investment if you decide to cut it up. If not, it is like the amazing pieces of handmade art you find this stone in, a piece to admire and appreciate. https://perrynulltrading.com/products/bisbee-turquoise-specimen-over-125-lbs-a-collectible
