In the 1940’s, Dowell Ward purchased the old Cortez claims and developed them using the names Fox Turquoise, White Horse, Green Tree and Smith Turquoise to differentiate among the colors produced in the area and to create a larger perceived share of the turquoise market. The area produces a huge amount of good quality blue, green or blue-green stone with a distinctive matrix. Most of the Fox Turquoise comes out as nugget material. The nuggets from the Fox Turquoise mine are absolutely gorgeous, some bubbly and almost prettier in their natural state as a Turquoise Nugget. Most of this Turquoise that we have cut has been a light to medium blue with a darker color of green or blue spider web which is called water web. The Fox Turquoise Mine in Nevada also produces a beautiful clear blue with no matrix. Most of the Fox Turquoise material that has come out as of late is of the clear medium aqua blue variety.Native Americans believe that the earth is alive and that all things, no matter how small or apparently inanimate, are precious. To the Native Americans, turquoise is life. There are stones medicine men keep in their sacred bundles because they possess powers of healing. Stones and crystals have unique attributes that support and heal us. Turquoise, especially, is known for its positive healing energy, an aid in mental functions, communications and expression and as a protector. If you’re wearing a turquoise ring and you look down and see a crack in your stone, the Native Americans would say “the stone took it”, meaning the stone took the blow that you would have received.\n
