A staple addition to your Southwest fashion collection, Carico Lake Turquoise is also a collectible North American Turquoise with an astonishing color palette. Ranging from highly unique electric greens to sky blue; from teal to mossy, earthy greens. And rarely, a nugget with both earth and sky color. The highest grade Carico Lake Turquoise is gem-quality American turquoise. Originally known as Stone Cabin, and then Aurora #8, Carico Lake Turquoise has a colorful history for a dried-up lakebed in a remote part of Lander County. The mine has come to rest with the owner of Sunwest Silver Company, Ernest Montoya.
Hailing from a string of mines in Tonopah, Nevada - Royston remains one of the oldest, still active mines, in Nevada. This collectible turquoise has an incredibly flexible color palette of bright blues and deep greens which are coupled with a unique, brown matrix.
Considered to be one of the classic and more easily recognizable American Turquoises, Kingman Turquoise was first mined by Native Americans as early as 600 A.D. This Arizona turquoise rose to fame due to its production of nuggets - which few mines produce. Today, Kingman Turquoise is highly prized and sought after by collectors worldwide.
