This stone is a super gemmy high grade Indian Mountain piece I bought from Ed Mauzy one evening when he walked into my store in Sedona, Arizona. I was open late and he came in. I had never met him before, but his reputation preceded him. I was happy to meet him and wish I had bought a hundred stones just like it. Of course, he didn't have a hundred. He only had one. That's the nature of high grade turquoise stones. Rare and beautiful.

Super X Turquoise is from a mine in Lander County, Nevada. The mine produced about 300 pounds of turquoise. Considered by some to be one of the best turquoise ever mined. I was able to purchase a small handful of nuggets from an eighty something year old dealer. It cut some beautiful stones. I have only a few left. This custom ordered bracelet showcases one of the few stones from this collection.
