We have just completed a great new informational presentation on Real Turquoise, we invite you to come and view our page. This page has a lot of good informative information for individuals interested in real Turquoise. Durango Silver Company has been known to be among the leading authorities on Turquoise, real Turquoise, fake Turquoise and highgrade Turquoise. We have created many educational pages on Turquoise and Turquoise Jewelry that you can find in our Turquoise Learning Center.

Quality Real Turquoise

High quality real turquoise is very rare, in fact, less then 10% of the Turquoise that has been mined throughout history has been high quality real turquoise. Natural high grade Turquoise is valuable and for good reason.

Do to this fact, the art of enhancing turquoise to a marketable color range has been going on for thousands of years. In the early years, wax and oils were used to darken inferior Turquoise, in recent years resins have become the most popular method of enhancing the gemstone. Today, fake Turquoise is being made in China which has very little, if any value, so beware when shopping for the best deal on Turquoise or Turquoise Jewelry as you might not be looking at Real Turquoise.

Buying Quality Real Turquoise and Real Turquoise Jewelry

When buying Turquoise or Turquoise Jewelry, you would be wise to learn a little about this gemstone and also learn the difference between a reputable dealer and those who are just in the business to make a quick buck.

Durango Silver Company deals in authentic Turquoise and Turquoise Jewelry from the American Southwest. We guarantee all of our Jewelry and products to have genuine,  real turquoise - above and beyond that we work hard to provide our customer the very best Turquoise available in the world!
