Bisbee Turquoise Pendants by Durango Silver Company

Natural Bisbee Turquoise

Bisbee Turquoiseis well known as being one of the most valuable and important types of Turquoise in the world. Durango Silver Company has one of the largest collections of Bisbee Turquoise in the world and will be producing a large variety of Bisbee Turquoise Pendants in 2011.

Bisbee Turquoise Pendantsfrom Durango Silver Company are made with authentic natural Bisbee Turquoisefrom the Bisbee Mine in Bisbee, Arizona. This mine has been closed since the late 1970’s and the only Turquoise that has been coming out of the mine since has been from thieves or from individuals that have went to the annual lavender pit tour held once a year for the Bisbee Rock and Mineral Club.

Bisbee Turquoise is very rare yet it can still be found by individual Jewelers in the southwesternregions of the U.S. who have had the fortune of obtaining old stashes of the gemstone. John and Dillon Hartman of Durango Silver Company have been blessed as Bob Mathews (the main and original legal Minors) lived in Durango and we purchased the balance of his partners, (Brother-in-law – Cecil Mickelson), rough Bisbee Turquoise.  Our collection of Bisbee Turquoise is extensive and we are presently cutting a large amount of rough to put into Bisbee Turquoise Pendants in 2011.

Purgatory at Durango Mountain has gotten over 30″ of new powder and this is a total winter wonderland here in Durango!

Blowing Snow at Durango Silver CompanyHere I am blowing snow in our parking lot at Durango Silver Company in my Kubota. We got about 18″ since last night, wow it is a lot of snow to move. It is good times though, everyone is in high spirits and happy to know that our mountains are jammed with snow/water for the spring and summer runoff which is important to us. We know now it will be very green this year in Colorado so start planning your trips.
