I usually buy my turquoise at a trading post in Gallup New Mexico. I like their selection and prices. Although, prices were up this January when I was there. They tell me American turquoise is becoming scarce. If you have old American turquoise form the 70's and 80's hang on to it!

I am heading over to the Chelan Art Festival  this weekend.
Here are a few new designs folks there will see in my mobile shop.

The teardrop is magnesite and the rest of the beads are turquoise.
The earrings have been SOLD.

This last one has a outback wood jasper pendant. SOLD

The earrings in the bottom center have been SOLD.
The earrings on the left and right have been SOLD.


Turquoise brings happiness and good fortune.

Care and treatment: The stone's color and lustre tend to deteriorate with exposure to sunlight, heat, or various weak acids. Avoid hot water and household chemicals. Relatively soft so avoid scratches and sharp blows. Make sure certain coatings are not removed.

Healing ability: Guards against all diseases. Attracts healing spirits. Believed to assist in subtle body alignment & strengthening and the absorption of nutrients while strengthening the immune system and stimulating tissue regeneration.

Mystical power: Valuable amulet for travelers. Protective stone, worn to guard against violence and accidents. Warns the wearer of danger or illness by changing color. In the 13th century, turquoise was thought to protect the wearer from falling, especially from horses. Promotes gentleness, tranquility, comfort, and wholeness. Stabilizes and balance the emotions and is drives away evil spirits.
