This Turquoise comes from the old Cerrillos mine in New Mexico. The Cerrillos mine is another small and very low production mine with a very rich history dating back to what they say is the oldest mine they have found..old prehistoric digs were found here linking back to the Aztec's.This deposit is located a few miles south of Santa Fe New Mexico in the hills around the old town of Cerrillos. There were many deposits worked over the centuries in these hills. During my time in the Turquoise business going back into the 1970's and being from Albuquerque I have come across some of this material over the years. All most impossible to find any rough or cabs from this mine...This stone comes from Part of my old stash and mine production.
This stone is cut from old material from this deposit. I cut the stone and then back it also. Which is how we cut stone in the southwest fot the very huge volume of turquoise that we use.This is the standard method for this industry. I cut turquoise for my jewelry designs as well as for the large manufacturers. I have been cutting turquoise for 35 years now and cut turquoise to last in jewelry.My jewelry that has my stones in in lasts a life time. Turquoise is a very special and very unique stone and very misunderstood and very few truely professional turquoise cutters exist in the USA.I have cut thousands of pounds of turquoise from all the old mines. I deal directly with the mine owners and I pick my rough from thousands of pounds avaialable. I try to pick rough that has very unique colors and patterns. You will see this is my cabs.If you are looking for a special look in turquoise or from a certain mine send me a email. I have a huge stock and probally have what you need.
