Posted by on Oct 15, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off


Turquoise from Sleeping Beauty, Kingman, Whitewater & Nevada mines to be featured at Dallas' only Turquoise Trunk Show.

Throughout history, people of many cultures have prized turquoise's beautiful blues & greens for decoration and credited the gemstone with mystical & medicinal powers.  

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to share in the romance & mystery of turquoise of the Southwest.  From geologists to jewelers, anyone who appreciates the natural beauty of turquoise will be able to view & purchase Turquoise before being released to the public or other retailers.  

We will have turquoise strands available from $20.   Large quantities and unique shapes rarely seen by the public will be on hand for your selection.  There will be a representative with information regarding the mines who will be able to answer any questions.

We look forward to providing you this rare opportunity!
