Nevada is rich with turquoise mines. From small hat mines like the X-15 prospect and the Lander Blue to the larger producers like the Blue Gem, Lone Mountain, Nevada Blue, Easter Blue, Candelaria and the Indian Mountain mine.
Nevada is host to the most turquoise claims in any state in America, and has the greatest number of turquoise claims of any one location in the world.
Nevada's Turquoise Deposits vary greatly from those in Arizona, rather than turquoise being the byproduct of a large copper mining operation, in Nevada most mines are owned by small "ma & pa" miners. In the past Nevada had over 400 registered claims for turquoise.
These days most of these small mines have been mined out or are no longer being mine.

My material is an acquired lifetime collection of a now passed lapidary jeweler. I was blessed with the honor of continuing his work as my long desired passion.1 to work with Gems stones from Mother Earth.
I let the stones dictate what they are meant to be.
Every piece is made with love, passion and respect for it’s Energy
