    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.

    Notice the Green, Blue, Yellow, Brown, and Cream Colored Cerrillos Turquoise like no other.

    Blue 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.

    This is the real thing.  Orange Rosarita from our personal collection. 

    Rosarita is a very rare material.  

    In the early 1940’s Gold Prices spiked.  As a result of the new high prices some Prospectors revisited the old gold mine areas in places such as Colorado, California, Alaska, etc. 

    These crusty codgers would build brick kilns over open pits and super-heat that gold-bearing ore that still litters the sites.  The return was small and the practice only lasted about 5 years.  The gold would sink to the bottom and the beautiful red gold slag would run off down the mountains, and solidify into boulders of Brilliant Red and Orange, much like Obsidian is formed in a volcanic reaction.

    It is very rare, but we are lucky enough to have a nice collection.  The material is durable and readily polishes to a beautiful shine.  So far we have found no other information on it.  We feel very blessed to have such a lovely earth element to work with.  Rosarita is the only material available in such a true red color.  Some pieces have swirls of orange and these are even more rare. 

    Rosarita was named after a beach in Mexico because of the brilliant color.

    Quartz crystal was once believed to be an eternal ice sent by the heavenly gods. Until the late 1500s, many scholars thought this stone was fossilized ice. Quartz crystal is actually a mineral, one of the most abundant minerals in the Earth's continental crust, composed of silicon and oxygen.

    Quartz can be icy clear or have inclusions, veils, bubbles and various colors. It is also known as rock crystal, crystal quartz, universal crystal or clear quartz.

    People in the earliest recorded times believed in the magical powers of quartz. Ancient Roman, Egyptian and Greek civilizations used quartz crystals as potent talismans.  The word crystal comes from the Greek word "krystallos," which means ice.

    A crystal within a Crystal!

    Like a diamond in the rough, Rutilated quartz was long disregarded by miners and mineral sorters as worthless. Only pure quartz was viewed as valuable and so this variety was seen as tainted.

    Around the middle of the 20th century, however, this began to change. Fashion designers and collectors began to appreciate the ethereal beauty of rutilated quartz, sometimes likening its shimmering rutile threads to angel’s hair.

    While the quartz in rutilated quartz can be either smoky or clear and sometimes even black, the color of the rutile inclusions will depend on their iron oxide content. When the iron oxide in rutile quartz is high, the inclusions take on redder and often golden tones. Such inclusions can look like hay or strands of golden hair. This is why golden rutilated quartz is often referred to as angel’s hair quartz

    AURORA OPAL 

    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.

    1 ¼"  including Lobster Claw

    Great to collect for a charm bracelet or to wear as a necklace.

    The Kingman turquoise mine, in Arizona, is the last remaining commercially producing mine in the United States. Evidence suggests turquoise was mined in the surrounding areas dating as far back as 600 AD.

    The mine where a piece of Turquoise was found—not its color, nor its matrix, which refers to the veins and patterns of the stone—is the primary factor in determining its value. Historically speaking, the finest turquoise came from the mountains of Asia. In the 20th century, however, the copper-rich American Southwest supplanted them as the primary source of rare, and valuable, specimens, including collector favorites such as Bisbee, Lander Blue, and Number 8 (Black Web). Tibetan Turquoise is highly prized.  Hubei also has some of the most beautiful natural Turquoise.

    If you are, or someone you know are from New Mexico or just Love New Mexico, this is the perfect item.  New Mexico’s distinctive insignia is the Zia Sun symbol, which originated with the Indians of the Zia Pueblo in Ancient times.  Four is the sacred number of Zia and the figure is composed of a circle from which four points radiate.  These points made up of four straight lines of varying length personify the number most often used by the Giver of all good gifts.

    To the Zia Indian, the sacred number four is embodied in the earth, with its four directions, north, south, east, west; in the year, with its four seasons, summer, fall, winter, spring; in the day, with the morning, noon, evening and night; in line, with it’s four divisions, childhood, youth, manhood, and old age.  Everything is bound together in a circle of life and love, without beginning, without end.  Everything is found together that in this great brotherhood of all things, man has four sacred obligations:  he must develop a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit and a devotion to the welfare of his people.
