9780615705767: Turquoise: Jewel of the Southwest

The first limited edition published by Nevada Gem features more than 300 color images of remarkable turquoise, including the finest high grade, gem grade, rough nugget and fossilized specimens from 48 individual mines in Nevada. Turquoise - Jewel of the Southwest offers the most comprehensive collection of natural Nevada turquoise compiled in one volume, from the classic mines to well-known favorites and seldom seen mines, as well as one-of-a-kind jewelry from Native American and contemporary Western designers, such as George Kee, Cheryl Yestewa, Joe and Terry Reano, Cippy CrazyHorse and Roger Wilbur. Coveted for its resemblance to the blue of a clear Southwestern sky, turquoise is long-held to be the most exquisite stone to emerge from the American Southwest. Encompassing a remarkable variety of colors and hues, intricate spider web matrix, glassy and rough formations, turquoise casts a spell both aesthetic and spiritual. Turquoise truly is the Jewel of the Southwest.
