Morenci Turquoise

Morenci Turquoise

Morenci Turquoise is one of America’s most beautiful types of Turquoise from the past, it was mined in southeastern Arizona. The Morenci Turquoise Mine produced some of the finest Turquoise that has ever come out of the ground! It is high to light sky blue in color.  The Morenci Turquoise mine  produced Turquoise with a wonderful “Birdseye” or “Water Web” matrix pattern, beautiful iron pyrite that looks like Silver and black iron spiderweb matrix. It has become difficult to obtain now because the mine stopped producing Turquoise in the late 1970’s.

Morenci Turquoise Collection

Morenci Turquoise Collection find!Great Day! Dillon bought a  big collection of Morenci Turquoisetoday! The Morenci Turquoise collection came out of Farmington New Mexico from an old miner from Morenci, Arizona. The gentleman had been a miner at the Morenci Copper Mine since 1960 until about 1975. He said the Turquoise was plentiful when he worked there, he worked with a front end loader moving thousands of tons of rock from blasts. He would spot the Morenci Turquoise and set it aside in piles to come back and pick up before he went home at night. He said at one time he had over 600 lbs of Morenci Turquoise in his back yard.

Anyway, Dillon got the rest of his best Morenci Turquoise that he had been saving. He just got to old and decided he was not going to ever do anything with it so he called Dillon. Dillon bought 120 lbs of high grade natural Morenci Turquoise from this old guy. What a find!
