by Randy and Etta Endito (Navajo). Stones from High Lonesome mine. High end American Turquoise. The largest stone is about 1 1/4" by 7/8".
In the rugged foothills of southern New Mexico in the lower Hatchet Mountain range, you will find a very rough and beautiful place full of endless hills of Century plants. Here you will find the now obsolete High Lonesome Turquoise. For over 30 years in six week stretches, from sun up to sun down, owner Ray and his crew looked for the beautiful, very hard, green to powder blue turquoise. There's very little left now.
