Cryer Creek Collection Cryer Creek Collection

The jewelry and artifacts in this collection were gathered by a man born in 1933 and who has been collecting for over 60 years. He has a great love of Native American people, their culture and customs and their art. Living and working most of his life in Texas, he has been particularly drawn to Lakota, Comanche, Apache, Pueblo, Navajo and Zuni pieces. We will be listing items from his collection over the next year, so keep an eye on the Newly Listed Items page.

What is block turquoise?

Block Turquoise is a manufactured material that is made to look like turquoise. It may be all polymer or it may have crushed or powdered turquoise or other stone mixed with resin or polymer. Block Turquoise sometimes has swirls or blobs of dark dye added to simulate the look of natural matrix. The value of block turquoise is that it is very stable, it will not change color or fracture as will natural turquoise. This enables the artist to use smaller beads for necklaces without the danger of them breaking. Jewelry made from block turquoise will look just as bright and beautiful years from now as from the day it was made. Natural turquoise, although beautiful, can deteriorate over time, losing color and stability. Most heishi and jacla necklaces use either block or stabilized turquoise for this reason.
