Castle Dome Turquoise

Castle Dome Turquoise

Castle Dome Turquoise  is one of the America’s Turquoise classics from the days of the past. The light sky Arizona blue Turquoise from the Castle Dome mine, located in  Arizona,  was widely used in Turquoise Jewelry by Native American Jewelry artisans in the mid 1900 period. Between the 1940’s and 1980’s the mine supplied much of the Turquoise used in Zuni Jewelry and Navajo Jewelry. You will find a major share of old pawn jewelry, especially in the cluster, Zuni needle point jewelry, and Zuni petite point jewelry to have Castle Dome Turquoise Cabochons. Castle Dome was widely used as the mine was a high producer in its time.

Arizona Blue – Castle Dome Turquoise

Castle Dome (1943) and Pinto Valley (1972) are located five to eight miles west of Miami in Gila County, along the south slopes of the Porphyry Mountains. Large quantities of copper and Turquoise have been produced from these areas. This Mine produced about 75% chalk grade Turquoise that was stabilized by the Hardy Company of Globe Arizona and about 25% that was quality cutting grade that was used in the American Turquoise Jewelry Industry.  The Castle Dome Turquoise Mine was in its height of production in 1960 and used in the typical Turquoise cluster Bracelets, Rings, Squash Blossom Necklaces and Earrings you will find from that time period.
