The Turquoise

Turquoise, sleeping beauty, kingman, pilot mountain... Nevada, Arizona

Since 1971, we bring you the most beautiful turquoise stones, from the pale blue "Dry Creek" to the emerald green "Broken Arrow", and the best known of them all, the "Sleeping Beauty". Coming exclusively from the USA, mainly from Nevada or Arizona, our turquoise stones differ depending from their deposit as much by their colour and density. The turquoise being a fossilized phosphate, it feeds from oxydation of its various surrounding minerals, mainly iron, copper  which all will give it its final tint.

Vast amounts of turquoise-made objects have been found on various sites of the American West, confirming the important spiritual symbolism for the ancestral Pueblo people, as well as their Zuni descendants and other Rio Grande tribes who associate the blue turquoise stone to the father "Sky" and the green turquoise to the mother "Earth".

Early on, Zuni fetishes were sculpted in turquoise to elevate and bring out their strenght and power. The Kachina dancers from the Hopi and Zuni tribes wear turquoise necklaces and offer turquoise powder to the gods to accompany their prayers. Other South-West peoples such as the Navajos believe turquoise carries special powers, and that turquoise jewellery brings good fortune to who wear it.
