Ethically Sourced Blue Turquoise

Know where your crystals come from

This Blue “Sonora Gold” Turquoise is from artisanal miners in Sonora, Mexico. The area is dominated by Campitos Mountain Mine, an industrial Copper mine.  There are numerous small Turquoise mines surrounding the large mine because the land is so copper-rich. This type of artisanal mining has a low environmental impact and is relatively low risk for workers. Many of the miners either polish their stones personally or sell them to artisans in their local community.

This gem dealer is a family business that specializes in Turquoise and southwestern jewelry. They buy directly from Turquoise miners and the business is an incredible educational resource.

I have had several Turquoise suppliers over the years and was never satisfied with the sourcing. In 2021, one of my ethical sourcing goals was to find a Turquoise specialist. Rather than hunt at a large gem show, I searched online and by word-of-mouth. Eventually, I found a company that specializes in southwestern jewelry and sells wholesale Turquoise to jewelers. I introduced myself to the owner and asked if he could help me. At first, he assumed I wanted cheap/fake Turquoise to sell to the healing crystal community. He was surprised, but pleased, to hear that I wanted the real thing.

The owner asked one his long-term employees to help me find what I needed. For the next two weeks, he sent me dozens of photos of rough rocks and polished cabochons in every shade of blue and green. At one point, I commented about the ethics of industrial mines since Turquoise is often mined in industrial Gold or Copper mines. He immediately responded with detailed information about how their company sources and about how Turquoise mining works in general. I was delighted to find a source that is actually willing and able to talk about these things! So I asked questions, he answered, and the more we talked, the better friends we became.

Genuine Turquoise is expensive and most Turquoise has been stabilized because the mineral is so brittle. My original budget for Blue and Green Turquoise had to be adjusted when I was given an opportunity to get natural vivid-blue Turquoise nuggets. These are a rare find! I promised to return in a few months to shop for Green Turquoise. But, I told them, if you ever get Green Nuggets please call me immediately and I’ll move money around!

Blue Turquoise Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published January 2015  •  Updated February 2023  •  Read Time: 10 minutes
Turquoise can be blue, green, or somewhere in between.  Most of the Turquoise you see in jewelry and in tumbled stones has been stabilized.  This is because untreated can be soft like chalk and crumble easily.  Some nuggets are sturdy enough to not require stabilization, but those little gems are rare.  Turquoise has been sought after for thousands of years for its beauty and healing properties.  According to Native American tribes in the southwest, the blue stones have a ‘male energy’ that evokes Father Sky, while the green ones have ‘female energy’ and Mother Earth.  Regardless of the hue, it is […]
