Get ready for some purple turquoise! Yes, you heard us right, it is a purple stone! Purple Mohave Turquoise is only available in the Kingman Mine in Arizona. This unique stone showcases bright crimsons, blues, pinks, purples, and violets with striking metallic matrices.

Unfortunately, it is not naturally purple. It begins as classic Blue Kingman Turquoise that is then dyed and subjected to a Bronze fusion process. This process creates the metallic matrices in the stones.

The Kingman Mine is the only mine authorized to process their stones in this manner.
