The King Manassa mine in central Colorado is recognized as one of the earliest sources of American turquoise; examples have been found in Anasazi sites scattered across the Southwest. Owned and operated by three generations of the King family, the mine has been inactive for decades. This powerful squash blossom necklace features six large and beautiful cabochons of high-quality Manassa turquoise. The necklace is believed to have been created in the 1970s by an unknown silversmith.
