โ›๏ธ Once I lived next to a Turquoise mine in ๐—–๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฑ๐—ผ.

๐Ÿ”๏ธ From my home I could see the ๐—ง๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ผ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฒ, which looked like a small hill in the distance. All along that area of southern Colorado you can see old diggings from prospects. The area was rich in phosphates which is one compounds along with copper and aluminum that make up turquoise .

๐Ÿคฒ Driving up to the mine I knew it was still an active mine, but I was determined to go check it out. What I gathered was a few handfuls of chalky blue green turquoise fragments...

๐Ÿ’  Used in this jewelry is the more classic robins egg blue ๐—ž๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป ๐—ง๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—พ๐˜‚๐—ผ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฒ.

๐Ÿ“œ Turquoise gets its name from the French turquois meaning "Turkish" because the mineral was first brought to Europe through Turkey, from mines in the historical Khorasan Province of Persia.
The stone is also considered sacred to the indigenous Zuni and Pueblo peoples of the American Southwest. The pre-Columbian Aztec and Maya also considered his blue stone to be a valuable and culturally important stone.
