One of the legendary US Turquoise deposits, the Tyrone Mine is famous for producing the finest Turquoise to come out of New Mexico. This stunning cab is Tyrone at its best, a dazzling bright blue with a pleasant contrast of matrix. Like all Tyrone that becomes available today, this one is from an old collection - the area of the mine is now a large scale copper operation and the Turquoise is destroyed during retrieval; a sad fact that has been the case for decades now. A lovely and historic stone.
