Manassa turquoise is mined at Manassa in south central Colorado. It is known for its blue-green to green color with a golden or brown, non-webbed matrix. The Manassa mine is still in production, and owned by the King family, thus the alternate name sometimes used for this turquoise. The current owner of the Manassa Mine is Bill King. Bill is a wonderful stone cutter and was a wonderful miner. These days he is sticking more to cutting stone and having it made into jewelry. The mining at Manassa at this time is at a stand still. The Manassa mine used to be call the Lickskillet Mine in the old days. This stone is one of our favorite, the beautiful green color is VERY striking, excellent when used in gold.

This is a stone that measures 1/2 inch by 3/8 inch and is an irregular rounded square and 1/8 deep. 1/16 of the depth is the turquoise and 1/16 of it is the platform stone that should set into the ring. It's really cute. The coloring is a really beautiful green with gold webbing - just like the first photograph here. This lovely stone popped out of the setting sadly about a month after I bought the ring and I lost the actual silver ring along the way. But I originally bought it from a Native American man, a jewelry maker, at an outdoor Native American crafts fair in Arizona, just south of the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. It came with a note of authenticity that he'd signed, but I can't find it. :( I paid $10 for the ring only. Anyhow, if you are a jewelry smith and can do something nice to set this stone and give it a good home in a nice silver or gold setting, she's all yours.

Cheers,
Genevieve
