This is a Royston Turquoise Video, Dillon and Nattarika Hartman have created this Royston Turquoise Video for your enjoyment and education on Royston Turquoise and Royston Turquoise Jewelry from Durango Silver Company. In 2007, we worked with the Otteson's (mine owners) and the Travel Channel to create a great video to be aired on the Travel Channels "Where to find Cash and Treasures Show". We had a great time and Dillon has made this video on Royston Turquoise and mining tours at the Royston Turquoise Mine. The Royston Video that we did with the Travel Channel was actually our second video that we did and wow, did we ever learn a lot about making videos! It was a great experience and the otteson's have benefited greatly from our efforts. They now give daily tours to the mine for a fee which keeps them busy and has created a whole new business for them.
You can mine Turquoise yourself at the Royston Turquoise Mine with the Otteson's, they give tours to the mine from April to November as well as by appointment for groups. For more information on Mining Tours at the Royston Turquoise Mine, check our the mining tour page on the Royston Turquoise Website - Royston Mine Tours.
The Hartman family have been good friends with the Otteson's for many years. When we made the video with them in 2007, we got a lot of great natural Royston Turquoise from them. We cut Royston Turquoise cabochons often and use the high grade natural cabochons in our Sterling Silver Turquoise Jewelry that we make or have made for us. Royston Turquoise is beautiful and has a great history. The Otteson family have been Turquoise Minors for many years and are great people. They are very active in preserving natural American Turquoise and work hard to produce some of the finest Turquoise coming out of Nevada today.

To the right is a Royston Turquoise Bead Pendant strung on Royston Turquoise beads. Dillon Hartman cut this Royston Turquoise Bead and Nattarika strung it on a set of Royston Turquoise Beads that were specially cut for us. Royston Turquoise Beads are very scarce as the Otteson's do not have much of their material cut into Turquoise Beads. Occasionally we have rough Royston Turquoise cut into beads, however, it is getting harder to find bead cutters in the United States and we no longer send rough material to China to be cut due to that loss of material.
