We are your trusted source for turquoise. Our gemstones are certified by the Gemological Institute of America. Genuine turquoise ranges in color from Olive-Green to blue green to blue. From vibrant, light colors to dark turquoise, the diversity of shades assures you of our gemstones' authenticity and presents you with options for genuine turquoises jewelry that matches your tastes and preferences. Real turquoise will always be unique, and there are many turquoise colors - it's important for you to know that you are purchasing something real for you and your loved ones to treasure forever.

Turquoise achieves its spectrum of colors, from sky blue to olive green, through a combination of copper, aluminum and phosphorus. The often-dramatic matrix and inclusions in our genuine stones are a result of quartz, pyrite, sandstone and other "host materials" in the surrounding area where the stones are formed. From turquoise pendants to turquoise stone rings, our gemstones are set in materials like sterling silver to accentuate the natural luster and color of the turquoise and produce a dramatic contrast.

Most of our gemstones of green and blue Turquoise are stabilized for you, since the mineral content may weaken it. This is the most common treatment of turquoise to strengthen the stone with clear resin. It will also enhance the color and prevent the natural color from changing color over time. Sleeping Beauty Turquoise from the mine in Globe, Arizona is very pure, natural blue turquoise without mineral content, so it does not require stabilization. Enjoy the gift of Mother Nature, earthy green and sky blue turquoise to make a classic Southwest and Western Cowgirl statement.  

  • Blue Turquoise: It was first found in Persia, and has since been found in pockets, or veins, around the world, including some American mines. Blue turquoise forms when its host rock contains a high level of copper. For this reason, the Sleeping Beauty Mine in Arizona, which is surrounded by copper mines, is best known for its clear blue turquoise

  • Sleeping Beauty Turquoise:The sky-blue Sleeping Beauty stones display a vibrant hue that has been coveted as the epitome of turquoise since the stone's discovery. Legend has it that when the wind whistles through the canyon it is searching for this sky stone. The now-closed Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Mine, in Arizona, was long heralded for its Robin's egg blue stones that contain so few matrices that it is virtually flawless in appearance.

  • Green Turquoise: It is found in parts of the American Southwest, as well as in parts of Asia and the Middle East. Green turquoise is created when there is a higher level of aluminum than copper, or when zinc or iron replaces the aluminum entirely. In recent years green turquoise has become highly sought after for its rare color and matrix formations.

  • Kingman Turquoise: The Kingman Turquoise Mine, in Arizona, is one of the oldest turquoise mines in America. It was discovered more than 1000 years ago by the Indigenous peoples of the area. The mine is known for producing many variations of stones, from sky blue to green, and containing striking matrices that make each stone rich in character and uniqueness. This mine has been the biggest supplier of turquoise to Southwestern jewelry in history.
