    Mother of pearl shell for jewelry refers to the nacre that coats the inside layer of the mollusk shell which is used to form pearls--hence, it's the mother of the pearl. Mother of pearl shell jewelry can include much larger focal pieces than simple pearls since nacre substance takes up a whole shell's interior, offering a larger working surface for carving. In addition to jewelry, mother-of-pearl shell has been used in medieval European, East Asian and Islamic religious art. Starting during the Victorian Era, mother-of-pearl shell began to also be used for clock faces, buttons, jewelry boxes and more. One especially popular use was inlay work, such as the handles of knives and pistols, as well as historical and contemporary use as inlays for guitars and other musical instruments.

    Campitos Turquoise was mined extensively in ancient times, with evidence of trade with Native American peoples. The Toltecs and Aztecs left much evidence of the importance of turquoise to these cultures.  Campitos is unique in several ways. It grows in clay as free-form nuggets, rather than as veins which is typical of many North American turquoises. Its color is said to most closely resemble Sleeping Beauty Turquoise, and ranges from a light to medium blue, occasionally with pyrite inclusions, giving it a bit of sparkle. A lovely, hard stone with beautiful color, Campitos is a favorite for jewelry artisans.The mine as we know it today has been producing since the 1980's.

    Cultured Opals are a lab created stone.  It was a project started some 20 years ago by a turquoise fanatic and chemist.  Lab created opal is pretty but gets dull, and it just doesn’t really capture the light dispersement that real opals do.  This was because no one was really getting those silica dioxide particulars small enough to mimic Mother Nature.  The nano particles of silica dioxide are just the same as natural opal.  They are almost as small as an atom.  The matrix is a nod to turquoise and the two together are magic.  It takes about a year to grow.  It is more durable than natural opal and this makes this material ideal for rings and bracelets as detergents won’t hurt it.  It has a hardness of 5.5 on the Mohs scale.

    Many ancient cultures believed that Lapis Lazuli contained magical powers. In the Middle Ages, monks powdered the stone and kneaded it into dough with beeswax, resin and linseed oil, for use in illuminated manuscripts. Today, people around the world consider lapis lazuli to be a stone of awareness, able to impart knowledge and wisdom.  It is reputed to bring about harmony in relationships and to cleanse the mind bringing about self-acceptance.

    Denim Lapis has more Quartz inclusions, thus the lighter color, a blue jean Blue.

    The Cerrillos Turquoise mine is a turquoise mine located in the Cerrillos Hills, 20 miles southwest of Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is one of the oldest and most important turquoise mines in North America.

    The Cerrillos Hills have been mined for turquoise since at least the 12th century. The turquoise from Cerrillos was prized by the Ancestral Puebloans, who used it to make jewelry and other objects. The Spanish also mined turquoise in Cerrillos, and the mine was active until the early 20th century.

    The Cerrillos Turquoise mine is a open-pit mine. The turquoise is found in veins that run through the sandstone. The turquoise is mined by hand and then sorted by quality. The best turquoise is used to make jewelry, while the lower-quality turquoise is used for other purposes, such as making paint.

    The Cerrillos Turquoise mine is a popular tourist destination. Visitors can tour the mine and learn about the history of turquoise mining in Cerrillos. The mine is also a popular spot for rockhounds, who come to search for turquoise.

    Tyrone Turquoise

    Turquoise mining in the Burro Mountains near Silver City, New Mexico, has been going on since pre-historic times.  The Tyrone mine produced great quantities of hard, deep and bright turquoise as well as pale spring green turquoise.   "Turquoise John" or John Coleman, is credited with the modern unearthing of Turquoise in this area.  It is said he discovered some of the old mining activities while he was on a hunting trip in 1875.  Research resulted in the discovery of the ancient excavations.

    The mine hasn't produced any turquoise since the 80's.  This turquoise is highly collectible.
