John and Dillon Hartman are on the forefront in promoting authentic, natural and American Turquoise. We have worked with many Miners and the leading dealers to promote this spectacular gemstone. For example, John and Dillon put together a deal with the Travel Channel to film the Royston Mine in Tonopah, Nevada. They ended up airing the flick on “Where to find cash and treasures” on the Travel Channel and the Otteson’s now have opened Royston Turquoise Mine Tours to the public which subsidizes their Mining endevors and enables them to keep all of their Turquoise 100% natural with no treatments or alterations to their material.

American Turquoise is the gemstone of choice for our studies and use in our Jewelry and products. We do appreciate Turquoise from other regions of the world but have little control of what forieners do with their gemstones when they are removed from the earth. It has been our experiance that gemstones from other parts of the world get treated or enhanced before being put on the market. We prefer authentic and natural material and so we are pro-American when it comes to Turquoise.
