Southwest #TurquoiseMines have the most beautiful Turquoise Stones. The Native American Silversmiths  in the Southwest use these stones when making their jewelry. This art has been handed down from one generation to the next. Here is an article about a few of the Turquoise mines. Donna Bunnell

High Grade Kingman Spider Web Turquoise

The Mineral Park Mine, in the Cerbat Mountains 14 miles northwest of Kingman, was first mined by Indians centuries before white man came to the area. It is one of the three sites of prehistoric mining localities in the state of Arizona. Mineral Park was the most extensively worked area by the Indians of the three. S.A. “Chuck” Colbaugh found a cache of stone hammers uncovered in ancient trenches and tunnels, when he had the turquoise mining concession in May of 1962. Ithaca Peak and Turquoise Mine (formally called Aztec Mountain or Aztec Peak) are the most famous of the peaks in the area containing turquoise.

General Discussion  - 
 
Treasures of the Southwest is proud to support the #Native #American Artists that are members of the Indian Arts and Crafts Association.

The Indian Arts and Crafts Association was established in 1974 in response to the growing problem of misrepresentation of American Indian arts and crafts in the marketplace. The original founders were American Indian artists and reputable businesses located primarily in the Southwest. Today, IACA is an international organization representing every link in American Indian arts – Native artists from the U.S. and Canada, along with consumers, retailers, wholesalers, museums, government agencies, suppliers and supporting members.

IACA works to support the effective protection, ethical promotion of authentic Native American art and preservation of material culture has helped instill confidence in the consumer marketplace. Through its markets, educational publications, cultural programs, seminars and networking to enable artists’ work to reach a global market, IACA has played an integral role in the strengthening of the Indian arts and crafts industry. Consumers know that if they see the IACA logo, they can buy with confidence.

Buyers and collectors have learned to look for the IACA logo as a standard of authentic American Indian art. The IACA logo assures buyers and collectors of purchasing with confidence. The symbol is copy-righted and only members of the Association are allowed to use it. As a member, each artist and business agrees to honestly and ethically represent their merchandise and to abide by all state and federal laws.

Apache Blue #Turquoise  Jewelry
The Apache Blue Mine turquoise mine, is a small mine with lots of potential. The mine is located near Tonopah, Nevada in the Candelaria Mountain range. In recent years the mine, (an open pit) has re-opened rendering Apache Blue turquoise with beautiful blue stones with eye popping black matrix. This high quality Apache turquoise is very rare and hard to find, even in this mine, but it's what every turquoise miner is searching for. Unfortunately only a small amount of this nice natural hard turquoise with really beautiful dark blue, webbed nuggets have been discovered. This turquoise is truly some of the nicest from Nevada.
