Turkish Purple Jade Jewelry - International Gem Society - IGS
Turkish purple jade, also known as turkiyenite, has been used as a modern gemstone since the 1980s. During that time, tons of the material were exported to commercial markets. Only one place in the world produces it: the Bursa region of Turkey. Bursa is also known as a source of quartz, diaspore, epidote, orthoclase, and other rocks and minerals.
