Creamy Powder Blue Gentle Cocoa Matrix Soft Versatile Color Rare


••••Yummy!


Are you wondering what this lovely creamy powder blue stone is?


Dry Creek Turquoise was an amazing discovery on the Shoshone Indian Reservation in Nevada in 1993.


Turquoise is a rare product of nature where an incalculable number of geologic events must synchronize to create just one thin vein of turquoise. Dry Creek Turquoise is unique in its appearance & color due to its relative absence of heavy metals and to date there has been no other mining discovery.


The combination of heavy metals in the earth where Turquoise forms is what gives Turquoise its range of colors. For example, blue turquoise has a combination of Copper + Aluminum heavy metals typically found in Arizona. The combination of Iron + Aluminum creates more of a green hue typical of Nevada turquoise. The relative absence of heavy metals is what makes Dry Creek’s Turquoise such a lovely, soft, creamy, powder blue color.


The other wonderful thing about Dry Creek Turquoise is that it is very hard. Most turquoise this light in color is called chaulk and is too soft to cut into cabochons. Chaulk Turquoise must be treated or stabilized prior to cutting and processing. Dry Creek Turquoise is considered to be a very hard rare American Turquoise that does not require any further treatment.


Shop our collection of Dry Creek Turquoise jewelry crafted by the Native American artisans. Dry Creek Turquoise is soft and lovely with a creamy brown matrix unlike you have seen in most other turquoise jewelry.

Interestingly, the Shoshone Indian Reservation where Dry Creek Turquoise was discovered, is not known for jewelry creation so they trade their turquoise to the Navajo Indians in Arizona and New Mexico where its made into Native American Turquoise Jewelry.
