Stone Mountain Turquoise Bracelet 006

This genuine green turquoise stone is from the Stone Mountain mine in Nevada.

The Stone Mountain mine is an amazing mine with the variety of turquoise colors that come out of it. I have found greens, light blues and dark blues. Sadly, the turquoise is pretty much gone from this mine and has been taken over by a copper exploration company.

Care: Turquoise stones can range in color from bright blue to green.

This can be avoided with care and attention by cleaning your gemstone with a soft cloth and water.

Description

Centuries ago, many cultures considered turquoise to be a gemstone of the heavens. They believed that the striking blue stones were sacred pieces of sky. Turquoise has graced the halls and tombs of Aztec kings and Egyptian pharaohs, such as Tutankhamun, whose golden funeral mask is inlaid with turquoise. This blue stone with its rarity and its diverse beauty, the greatest allure to this gem remains its legendary history of how past and present cultures value its numerous mystical properties.

Turquoise first began to appear in North America around 200 B.C., where it was also used as ornament. The Southwest natives and Indian tribes of Mexico produced beautiful beads and necklaces from locally mined turquoise. This was a precursor to the explosion in turquoise jewelry that continues today.
