"Sonoran Gold Turquoise is mined in Sonora, Mexico near the city of Cananea. The mine is located at the Campitos Mountain just outside of the city, only about a 35-mile drive from the Arizona border. The local economy relies heavily on the large copper mines in the area and turquoise has long been a by-product of these mines.
The most eye-catching aspect of Sonoran Gold Turquoise is its gorgeous color. It features a bright green color with splotches of gold. It is not uncommon to find specs of pyrite in the stone, giving it an added flair. No two stones appear the same and every piece of jewelry has a unique look."-StageCoach
