Turquoise, Water, Sky


If you are a fan of the stone, this is an exhibit not to be missed. Currently on exhibit at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. Here is a small snippet from their website, People in the Southwest have used turquoise for jewelry and ceremonial purposes and traded valuable stones both within and outside the region for over a thousand years.Turquoise, Water, Sky presents hundreds of necklaces, bracelets, belts, rings, earrings, silver boxes and other objects illustrating how the stone was used and its deep significance to the people of the region.

Oh, I wish I were there
to see this exhibit.
I love turquoise . . . that blue
compliments the adobe colors
of New Mexico.

I would love this. When we lived in Arizona, I bought a turquoise kind of tie...can't remember what it's called. I've still got it somewhere.

I have both issues (years apart) of the New Mexico Magazine's publication of turquoise. I am so very sorry that I am not in SF for this exhibition. It must be spectacular and eye-popping.

I like the combination of turquoise and silver in jewelry. Very nice indeed.

I prefer to look at your azure sky.
I'll pass on jewelry.
It bores me.

This is an exhibition I'd love going to! Just imagine they have done this for over a thousand years. Wow!

I'm sure I would love this exhibit. Lately I've been drawn to the wood bowls and boards and even tables that combine beautiful wood with streaks of turquoise.

I really like the lettering and its background...

Turquoise is one of my favorite minerals. There is so much magic in the stone that connects the Earth to the Sky
