The massive Tyrone Copper Mine was located on Burro Mountain near Silver City, New Mexico. The mine closed in the 1980s and turquoise from this location is very special. There will be no more supplies of this distinctive stone since modern copper mining, with its crushing techniques and acid washes, destroys the natural turquoise, making the Tyrone variety so rare.

About the artist:

The jewelry created by Navajo silversmith Verdy Jake reflects Southwest jewelry classicism at its best.  Showcasing high quality turquoise and coral with substantial silver work, she intuits a perfect balance between precious metal and precious stone.
