Handmade & set in Sterilng Silver bezels, these Campitos Turquoise earrings by Navajo Silvermwith Erma Arviso perfectly set off this beautiful blue-green turquoise.

Mined in Mexico from the Pino Chueco and Cananea mines in Sonora, Campitos Turquoise was mined extensively in ancient times, with evidence of trade with Native American peoples. 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 with no matrix, and occasionally 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. Campito in Spanish is a derivative of the word “campo”, meaning “field” or “countryside”.

Authentic Native American Handmade Jewelry
Erma was born in Canocito, New Mexico and learned to silversmith from her mother, Jolene Shorty. She's been making her own unique jewelry since 1989. Erma's hallmark is "EA".
