Let’s be honest, whoever said money can’t buy happiness has never purchased turquoise jewelry! Unlike other stones we love from the Southwest, Golden Hill turquoise is mined in Kazakhstan. Another unique fact is it can only be mined during winter months, during the freezing cold and snow. It is unable to be mined during the summer due to seasonal flooding. In recent years, it has been gaining popularity with Southwestern jewelry artists due to its unique light blue color with dark, web-like matrix.

Golden Hill turquoise is a surefire way to stand out in the never-ending sea of blues and greens. Maybe we’ll see some pieces at the upcoming National Finals Rodeo in Arlington, Texas. These stones are even Vegas-worthy! Here’s hoping in 2021, right? You can dress it up for a night out on the town or dress it down for a day of shopping at the Fort Worth Stockyards.
