Unlike American turquoise which is usually identified by the specific mine, Chinese turquoise has historically simply been referred to as "Chinese turquoise", even though there are several different areas that produce the stone. Turquoise has been mined in China for over 2000 years, evidenced by its use in many pieces of art and carvings from some of the earliest dynasties.
Chinese turquoise ranges all across the spectrum from deep greens to dark blues and even yellows. The best and most collectible material is dark blue with excellent spider-webbing. Most of the matrix is dark brown or black.

Today, most of the turquoise produced in China comes from the Ma'anshan and Hubei mines. The Hubei province includes the Yungai (also known as Cloud Mountain) and the Zhuxi mines.
