I walked upon this little gem - absolutely excellent in content and style. I have since discovered it is very largely the effort of User:Hadal as part of Wikipedia:Danny's contest. -- [[User:OldakQuill|Oldak Quill]] 01:56, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Thanks guys! I hope to someday develop all of our gem articles to such a state. We'll see if I have enough self-discipline to make that happen. ;) -- Hadal 06:00, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Support: Very complete study. Giano 16:46, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Support. Can't think of anything wrong with this article. Jeronimo 20:07, 20 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Minor object: Image:Bisbee2.jpg doesn't have source and copyright information. — David Remahl 08:35, 21 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I've replaced it with Image:Chacoan turquoise with argillite.jpg; another NPS shot, but it's larger and shows the typical colour range of American material fairly well. -- Hadal 06:00, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Support. A top-notch article (as far as I can tell, not being a minerologist!). The "Formation" section is just one paragraph -- perhaps it could be merged into another section? And I agree that it would be good to have some copyright info for Image:Bisbee2.jpg. — Matt 19:45, 21 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Bisbee2.jpg has been replaced (I don't think the uploader is active any longer), and I've expanded "Formation"; is it still too slim to be a section of its own? -- Hadal 06:00, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Thanks; it's a good length now. — Matt 06:45, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Support. Excellent. Zerbey 23:29, 22 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Support. Great article. I'll probably fiddle with the Formation section some more - expand a bit, right now I'm still thinking about that hypogene data, hmm... I did some turquoise mining in Arizona back 25+ years ago. {B-)} -Vsmith 05:05, 23 Nov 2004 (UTC)
