Anyone who knows me or my work knows how I love American Turquoise like Sleeping beauty or Bisbee which are both nearly impossible to get. (So sad.) Nacozari sounds like an Asian name, but it is actually a mine in Sonora, Mexico. The mine is located south of the Bisbee, Arizona mine in the same mountain range. Nacozari is fast becoming highly collectible as it has become increasingly impossible to get.

Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.

Hematite is a stone that is most commonly -- and most strongly -- used to ground or stabilize and for protection. In spiritual work, hematite is an excellent stone to help keep yourself also connected to the Earth plane, as some would say via the silver cord, so that your spiritual learnings and travels can be done safely and things learned can be brought back to daily life more easily.

All jewelry designs are created using natural gemstones. There will be some natural variation in the jewelry. Our best is done to represent colors and markings in our photos. At Linda Blackbourn Jewelry, I've tried my best to describe everything as accurately as possible -- in words and photos. Gemstones vary, of course, as do computer monitor screens, so there may be minor discrepancies.
