A group of mines in the Burro Mountains near the town of Silver City, New Mexico, produced Tyrone turquoise. It has been said that more high-grade turquoise was produced in this area than any single deposit on record. Turquoise mining in the Burro Mountains had been carried out in prehistoric times and then later by the Spanish. This small suite of super-nice, natural Tyrone turquoise came from a collection put together in the 1970s. Roland Dixon is a Navajo silversmith practiced in the old, traditional style of work. This hand-hammered bracelet with elongated bump-outs was very difficult to accomplish.

When and how the Navajo acquired the art of working metals is unknown but there are reasons for supposing that it was introduced among them, or at least more developed and improved upon by them, since the time they have occupied their present country?
