Anasazi Turquoise by Durango Silver Co

Anasazi Turquoise, Ancient Turquoise, Pueblo Bonito

Durango Silver co has created a nice presentation on Anasazi Turquoise that we think is creditable. There is some great and enlightening information on the history of Turquoise in the America’s. There was actually a major trade in Turquoise from the Anasazi Indians at Chaco Canyon to Mesoamerica and maybe far beyond. In 1000 A.D. nomadic traders were coming up from the Mayan culture to obtain Turquoise from the Anasazi Indians. This is a great little story that is very interesting on Anasazi Turquoise.

Anasazi Turquoise -  The Anasazihad trade routes that spanned the western part of North and Mesoamerica. They traded ancient Turquoise for Parrots, Seashells and other trade items brought from Mexico and California by nomadic trade groups. The Anasazi owned Turquoise and copper mines that gave them valuable goods for trade. Archaeologists have found Anasazi Turquoise and copper in Mexico Ruins as well as Parrot Feathers and Seashells from the Gulf of Mexico have been found in the Anasazi Ruins. Check it out!

Brown Turquoise from Durango Silver Co

Durango Silver has just put up a presentation page on Brown Turquoise on our site and would like to invite you to take a look at it. We own and mine the Tortoise Turquoise Mine in Nevada and get this very unusual Brown Turquoise. As far as we know, Brown Turquoise is very rare and comes from very few mines in Nevada.

Brown Turquoisefrom Nevada is beautiful in Sterling Silver Jewelry produced by Durango Silver Company. We own the Tortoise Turquoise Mine and it produces a spectacular caramel to brown colored Turquoise that is outstanding in color with beautiful spiderweb and black swirled matrix that makes each stone a picture-stone. Brown Turquoise Jewelry is very unusual and has become very popular. Below, in the forth set of Brown Turquoise Jewelry photos, you can see how the Brown Turquoise was made in nature, the host rock was once soft and bled into the Turquoise mineral while it was forming, This justifies that Brown Turquoise from the Tortoise Mine is Brown Turquoise.
