The Old Stone Collection
is a group of high quality items that an avid Native American jewelry aficionado gathered throughout her life. When the jewelry passed on to her daughter, she contacted us. Watch for many fine items coming over the next months.

 


TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones.

KINGMAN TURQUOISE comes from Mohave County, Arizona. The Kingman Mine produces bright blue stones with white and black matrix. It is considered by many to have produced the best turquoise in North America. The terms "Kingman" and "high blue" refer to high quality hard turquoise like that of the Kingman mine. Old authentic natural Kingman turquoise is extremely rare. Read more about stones.
