In 1967 New Mexico declared turquoise its state stone. It surely came as no surprise to inhabitants of our great state, as the region has long been famous for its production of the gem and its extensive use among native cultures. Turquoise was the unofficial state stone long before 1967, and continues to enjoy incredible popularity in Albuquerque, across the United States, and around the world. As proud New Mexicans, we at Harris Jewelers appreciate the unique beauty of turquoise- from its distinct cast when set in a ring of silver, to its eye-catching hue when worn in a pair of earrings. This versatile stone has been a staple of fashion in New Mexico for centuries, so make sure your pieces last long enough to be passed down to the next generation by understanding the gemstone and taking proper care of it.
