Castle Dome/Pinto Valley Turquoise comes from the Castle Dome copper mine, located five miles west of Miami, Arizona. It was originally opened in 1943 and the turquoise mined then was called Castle Dome turquoise. The mine was closed in 1953 and later re-opened as the Pinto Valley Mine. The mine was bulldozed over in the late 1970's and all material on the market today comes from some rockhounds "old stash" With beautiful color variations ranging from sky-blue to bluish-green with the blue color being predominate, this turquoise is truly a high quality turquoise and a collectable treasure!
