  • Details
    This turquoise is from the Kingman Mine, which is located in Arizona. The Kingman mine is one of the oldest and highest producing turquoise mines in the United States. It was originally discovered by prehistoric people well over 1,000 years ago. This turquoise is known for its many variations of blue and blue-green turquoise. Unlike my previous Sleeping Beauty turquoise (not stabilized), this turquoise was stabilized prior to being crushed.

    This offer has been crushed with the associated natural matrix. Normally, we remove all of the matrix in many of our products, but we thought other artisans might like the more natural, rustic character of this product as well.

    Material Size:
    Medium - material is considered to be medium to fine (sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters.

    This product is NOT man-made, but was stabilized prior to being crushed. Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we strive to validate the source of all our minerals before they are crushed.

    Please see product images for color, size, and quality. Picture taken in full sun. Material is dry in the second and fourth photos. Material is wet in the first, third, fifth, and sixth photos. Measurements are using the metric system (millimeters).

    Frequently Asked Questions

    My tracking says delivered, but I did not receive my order?

    Makers Minerals ships all orders with tracking, including to locations outside of the United States. Our customers can follow their order using the tracking number that we always provide or through the Etsy app. Please contact your postal provider if you did not receive your package, especially if your tracking says "delivered". If you reside in the United States, we are happy to help you locate your misplaced package by calling your local USPS and getting GPS coordinates to help resolve the issue.

    What is the difference between mineral chips and crushed minerals?

    Mineral chips are usually tumbled to slightly tumbled pieces that can range in size and shape. Most shops buy mineral chips from a wholesaler (usually China) and then resell them on ETSY or elsewhere. They are rarely curated or tumbled by the actual seller.

    Crushed minerals are very different! They are not mass produced or offered at wholesale. Usually, the seller (myself) hand picks the material to be crushed; therefore, they can control the quality of the end-product.

    Are your stones really natural or real?

    YES, absolutely! Makers Minerals supplies QUALITY, natural minerals at an affordable price. All our minerals are 100% natural and untreated unless otherwise stated. For example, we have "lab-created" turquoise AND natural, untreated turquoise. Each mineral/listing will explicitly state if the material is natural, lab-created, synthetic, dyed, or treated in the listing title and listing description.

    What personal protective equipment should I use?

    It is always advised to wear nitrile gloves, when handling crushed minerals, especially mineral powders. I also would advise a N99 mask if you are sanding minerals or are using mineral powders in your project. In addition, make sure you have proper ventilation.

    Personally, I wear 4mil nitrile gloves, an N99 mask, and eye protection everyday!
