If you love blue Turquoise, then you have probably heard of the Nacozari mine and it's Turquoise often called "Naco" or Nacozari Turquoise. It was a mine in Sonora, Mexico. The mine is located south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine in the same mountain range. The mine is actually a copper producing mine.
Nacozari turquoise can be found in bright sky blue and deep navy blue colors. Nacozari is fast becoming highly collectible as it has become
increasingly impossible to get.
The Nacozari mine is closed for good according to Mexican officials. A Canadian gold mining company has acquired the mine and does not want any production of Turquoise to come from the mine. This is strictly enforced.
Nacozari turquoise is very hard to locate and highly collectible at the present time. You can still find this beautiful Mexican Turquoise, but it is becoming harder to find.
