The turquoise in this fine silver & sterling silver ring comes from the King’s Mine near Manassa Colorado.. It is one of the many turquoise deposits which was actively mined by Native Americans for centuries. I.P. King rediscovered the mine in 1890, and the King family has operated it ever since.
The Manassa turquoise mine, originally called the Lick Skillet Mine, produces an incredibly wide range of colors and qualities, from deep emerald greens to deep sky-blue. The mine is not currently active, so Manassa turquoise is quite rare on today's market.
