One of the largest Turquoise mines in the South West, Kingman Blue Turquoise is known for being the colour standard of the industry. Few mines produce Turquoise of this quality.
Some of the best Kingman specimens were mined in the 1960s and were an intense blue with a silver and black matrix. This grade was found in the Ithaca Peak area and has long been exhausted.
Re-opened in September 2004 since being closed in the 1970s the Kingman Mine yields around 1600 pounds of rough stone per month. Half is sent to China for cutting with the remainder sold to American artisans of the Turquoise trade.
