ABOUT THE STONES:

Sonoran Gold Turquoise is mined in Sonora, Mexico near the city of Cananea. The mine is located at the Campitos Mountain just outside of the city, only about a 35-mile drive from the Arizona border. The local economy relies heavily on the large copper mines in the area and turquoise has long been a by-product of these mines. There are a couple of different types that come from this area, but Campitos Turquoise is the most prominent. It has been produced on and off for a very long time. In fact, it was mined hundreds of years ago and brought north through trade routes with the Native Americans. White Water Turquoise is another beautiful stone that comes from this location. Sonoran Gold Turquoise is a brand new finding from the Sonora area of Mexico. Just like Campitos, there is an unusual way that it is mined. Most turquoise is cut from veins that interlace through host stones. A good way to visualize this is to take a look at a piece of Boulder Turquoise, which has been cut to emphasize these intricate ribbons of material. In contrast, Sonoran Turquoise actually forms inside clay deposits as individual nuggets.

A NOTE ON WEAR:

I have chosen high quality materials that make a piece of jewelry to last a lifetime. While my pieces are made for those with adventurous spirit, take care while wearing my pieces as natural stones can be delicate. To prolong the life of your piece, I suggest you remove it while swimming, hiking, rock climbing, cliff jumping, skydiving or whatever other crazy and rigorous adventure you find yourself on!
