Kingman Turquoise-largest turquoise mine in America

Over a thousand years before Europeans discovered the New World, prehistoric Native Americans found turquoise in the Kingman Turquoise mine.  As one of the oldest and most productive turquoise mines, Kingman turquoise is considered one of the most important turquoise mines in the world.

Commercially, turquoise at Kingman has been mined since the 1880’s but the Colbaugh family has owned the mine for many years.  It may be noted for its blue color, but Kingman Turquoise also has many shades and varieties as the stones below show.  This is a stone that any true turquoise collector should own!
