Tyrone turquoise was mined near Silver City, New Mexico. The original purpose was for copper mining. The mine hasn’t produced any turquoise since the 80’s when Phelps Dodge changed it’s method of mining copper to the process of crushing and acid wash which destroys the turquoise. Because of this, Tyrone turquoise is highly collectible.
