Turquoise is a classic steeple to have in any jewelry collection. The turquoise featured here in these earrings are natural Turquoise Mountain Turquoise. That means that they have not been altered in anyway, this is how Mother Earth created them (with the help of a stone cutter of course). Their bright blue hues and golden honey brown veining, this is a perfectly paired set of stones are cut from mirrored slabs. Their unique beauty is enhanced by a twisted rope design and a cute little drop so they dance on those earlobes of yours.
Turquoise Mountain Turquoise was mined in Arizona. In the 1960’s there were two peaks at Kingman Mountain that were mined simultaneously. Those peaks were Ithica Peak and Turquoise Mountain Peak. The turquoise featured here was mined in the Turquoise Mountain Peak and referred to as Turquoise Mountain Turquoise. In the 1970’s the mine ceased production for several years. This mine is considered one of the “classic” turquoise mines as the stones produced from this mine during this time period are very distinctive in their marking and coloration. In recent years, the Kingman mine operation has once again started mining at the Turquoise Mountain Peak. The turquoise being produced from this mine is easily distinguished from Kingman Turquoise. Turquoise from this mine is highly collectable, rich in color and and would be a great addition to any turquoise collection.
