Allure of Turquoise by Arnold Vigil

Book Description

This second edition of The Allure of Turquoise offers an illuminating look at the cherished gemstone that has come to symbolize the culture and history of the Southwest. The powerful allure of New Mexico's crown jewel comes alive through a diverse collection of feature stories contributed by some of the state's best writers. Their work delves into many facets of turquoise, from the miracle of its geological creation and its centuries-old mining history to its significance and use in the lives of Native Americans. Intriguing chapters touch on the mystery of old pawn, the treasures that reside in the world's first Turquoise Museum, the innovative artistry of New Mexico's contemporary Native jewelers, and how to distinguish the genuine article from cheap imitations. Readers will find plenty of turquoise lore and a fascinating essay on the strange-but-true relationship between ants and the blue-green stone.
