ABOUT THE STONES:
Sonoran Gold is mined in Mexico, near the City of Cananea. Relatively new in the market, this type of turquoise is a newer deposit in the Cananea mines. The said mine is located at Campitos Mountain. It’s not surprising that the Sonoran Gold Turquoise has gained popularity in the past years. With its striking and unique colors, there is no doubt it is a beauty! Its distinctive colors are aqua blue, lime, bright green, and even a two-tone blue and green. Best of both turquoise worlds. In addition, the Sonoran Gold turquoise also showcases golden to brown matrixes. In the turquoise market, the high-grade type of Sonoran Gold turquoise is a two-tone, usually, the one that fades from baby blue to lime green. It also has a yellow spider-web matrix.

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!
